WWF (Plastic Smart Cities)
The Circulate Initiative launches world-first investment tracker for plastics circularity, with the goal of mobilizing further capital. Plastic pollution is a global environmental problem that contributes to climate change and poses a risk to society, the economy and population health. Despite the potential of a circular economy to curb this crisis, gaps in financing and action remain. Leveraging deal-level information on private investments across emerging markets, the Investment Tracker is a world-first tool providing unique insights on the scale of investments into plastics circularity as well as the types of solutions and regions receiving funding.
