Why consider a circular economy?

A circular economy is defined as an upgraded production and consumption model for goods production, consumption and disposal that ensures sustainable growth over time. Right now, the world operates in what is called a linear economy; a model that can have significant negative impact on our world. Follow along below to learn more about how we operate today, how we can operate tomorrow and the potential investment opportunity a circular economy offers investors.

Consequences of a linear economy


These are the consequences of our current linear economy, which operates on a framework that is resource intensive, and a take-make-use-waste model. It is not sustainable.

The circular economy wants to change all this by designing and producing goods in a way that creates no waste or pollution in the first place, keeps them in use for longer, provides for efficient recycling and regenerates the natural environment. This sustainable economic system could yield enormous environmental, social and economic benefits across the world.

Life in a circular economy

Perhaps the best way to describe what a circular economy might look like and why it would be beneficial is through a few examples. In this section, we take a look at the principles of a circular economy applied to the fashion and food industries.

Plastics: A hundred-billion-dollar opportunity to reuse and recycle

Global companies, from retailers to plastics manufacturers, are setting high targets for plastics recycling, recycled and recyclable content, and recovery. For example, Sealed Air has pledged to make its packaging solutions 100% recyclable or reusable by 2025. The company has also set a goal of 50% average recycled content across all packaging solutions, of which 60% is post consumer recycled content.12 One of the drivers of these goals is the unsustainable practice of shipping plastic waste overseas, whereby developed countries are exporting shipping containers of plastic to developing countries, mostly in Asia.

New demand for recycled plastics could reach 5 to 7.5 million metric tons by 2030. If plastic recycling technologies can meet market demands, they have potential revenue opportunities of US$120 billion in the United States and Canada, alone. More than 40 companies with technologies to recycle used plastic into new plastic are operating pilot and commercial scale plants in these two countries today, or have plans to do so in the next two years.13

Many of them will partner with larger firms and investors to develop and scale their technologies. Unilever, in partnership with CreaSolv® Process and the Fraunho Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV, has developed a new technology to recover the plastic from the hundreds of billions of plastic sachets that are thrown away every year and use it to create new sachets for Unilever products, making it a fully circular approach.14

Reuse will also be essential to meeting the challenge of reducing single‑use packaging. Only about 14% of plastic packaging is collected for recycling, with just 2% recycled to a similar quality. After a short first‑use cycle, 95% of the material value of plastic packaging (roughly US$80 to 120 billion annually) is lost to the economy.15 Replacing just 20% of single‑use plastic packaging with reusable alternatives, such as long‑use, refillable high‑end packaging, offers an opportunity worth at least US$10 billion.16

Not-so-fast fashion

Waste is a severe problem across the textile industry. More than USD $500 billion of value is lost every year and in 2018 the fashion industry produced 2.1 billion tonnes of CO2eq. This represents 4% of global carbon emissions—an emissions’ share larger than that of France, Germany and the United Kingdom combined. To align with the 1.5-degree pathway in 2030, 20% of garments need to be traded through circular business models.17 Policy makers, investors and consumers are in support of this transition. In a recent McKinsey survey, more than three in five consumers said environmental impact is an important factor in making purchasing decisions.18

If the fashion industry were to address the environmental and social issues it faces by taking steps such as converting to a sustainable material mix, eliminating harmful chemicals, decreasing water use, and improving transparency and traceability, it could unlock a US$560 billion economic opportunity.19 If not, fashion brands could face significant threats, including declines to profit margins.

Innovators across the industry can and are finding ways to reduce waste. For example, many are seeking to:

  • Reduce resources used, including raw materials as well as water and energy sources, in the manufacturing process. 75% of all Nike footwear and apparel incorporates recycled materials, and Nike Air Manufacturing Innovation facilities divert more than 95% of manufacturing waste from landfills.20 They are implementing and scaling new design and manufacturing processes, with materials reclaimed throughout production and at the end of a product’s life.
  • Focus on the traceability of materials so companies can meet recycling standards. One innovative company has developed a chemical regeneration technology to transform post-consumer cotton garment waste into high-quality, cellulosic fiber.21
  • Increase the durability of clothes, and the ability to repair them, as well as create secondary markets.

More food for thought

Across the current linear food supply chain, 2.5 billion tonnes of food every year is lost and wasted. Food production and waste amounts to an estimated total GHG emissions of 13.7 gigatonnes/year22 and an economic cost of US$5.7 trillion—for every dollar spent on food, society pays two dollars in health, environmental and economic costs.23 In short, the current linear food system is enormously wasteful, drains resources and contributes to disease and pollution.

A circular economy for food can overcome these challenges:

  • Source and produce food locally. By 2050, 80% of food will be consumed in cities. While the feasibility of urban farming systems is subject to debate, 40% of the world’s cropland is within 20 kilometers of cities.24 Local sourcing increases the resilience of food supply chains, shortens distribution channels and reduces the need for excess packaging.
  • At the farm stage, use precision agriculture and regenerative practices, such as organic fertilizers, crop rotation, crop variation, rotational grazing, agro forestry and conservation agriculture. These methods can have a significant impact, as despite common perception, food loss and waste at the farm stage exceed that at the consumer stage. In fact, agriculture is responsible for 30% of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and 80% of deforestation.25
  • At the consumer stage, reduce and make use of food waste by redistributing edible food and using inedible food for fertilizer, biomaterials and bioenergy.

In Milan, Italy, municipal trucks (many powered by biodiesel) collect surplus food from households, commercial properties and schools, and transport it to an anaerobic digestion and composting plant. Once processed, biogas is injected into the local gas network and compost is used to fertilize farmland surrounding the city.

Important Information

This material is for information purposes only, and may inform you of certain products and services offered by J.P. Morgan’s wealth management businesses, part of JPMorgan Chase & Co. (“JPM”). Please read all Important Information.

Sustainable investing (“SI”) and investment approaches that incorporate environmental social and governance (“ESG”) objectives may include additional risks. SI strategies, including ESG separately managed accounts (“SMAs”), mutual funds and exchange traded funds (“ETFs”), may limit the types and number of investment opportunities and, as a result, could underperform other strategies that do not have an ESG or sustainable focus. Certain strategies focused on particular sectors may be more concentrated in particular industries that share common factors and can be subject to similar business risks and regulatory burdens. Investing on the basis of sustainability/ESG criteria can involve qualitative and subjective analysis and there can be no assurance that the methodology utilized, or determinations made, by the investment manager will align with the beliefs or values of the investor. Investment managers can have different approaches to ESG or sustainable investing and can offer strategies that differ from the strategies offered by other investment managers with respect to the same theme or topic. ESG or sustainable investing is not a uniformly defined concept and scores or ratings may vary across data providers that use similar or different screens based on their process for evaluating ESG characteristics. Additionally, when evaluating investments, an investment manager is dependent upon information and data that may be incomplete, inaccurate or unavailable, which could cause the manager to incorrectly assess an investment’s ESG/ SI performance.

The evolving nature of sustainable finance regulations and the development of jurisdiction-specific legislation setting out the regulatory criteria for a “sustainable investment” or “ESG” investment mean that there is likely to be a degree of divergence as to the regulatory meaning of such terms. This is already the case in the European Union where, for example, under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (EU) (2019/2088) (“SFDR”) certain criteria must be satisfied in order for a product to be classified as a “sustainable investment”. Unless otherwise specified, any references to “sustainable investing” or “ESG” in this material are intended as references to our internally developed criteria only and not to any jurisdiction-specific regulatory definition.
