In 2018, the World Economic Forum, World Resources Institute, Philips, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, United Nations Environment Programme, and over 40 other partners launched the Platform for Accelerating the Circular Economy (PACE; also referred to as the PACE Action Hub).[1] PACE advocates for a circular economy: "one that exchanges the typical cycle of make-use-dispose of in favour of redesign, reuse and recycling. According to the International Resource Panel, globally, nearly 90 billion tonnes of materials were consumed last year. This is predicted to double by 2050. Only 9% is cycled back into the economy, wasting an estimated $4.5 trillion in “recoverable” resources."[2]

PACE is led by a Global Director, David B. McGinty, who was the Director of Social Innovation and Technology at Palladium International.[3][4] Frans van Houten, CEO of Philips, and Naoko Ishii, CEO of the Global Environment Facility, serve as co-chairs.[5]

Projects[edit]

PACE works on (1) developing models of blended finance for circular economy projects, especially in developing and emerging economies; (2) creating policy frameworks to address specific barriers to advancing the circular economy; and (3) promoting Public–private partnership for these purposes.[6][7] PACE projects focus on various themes in the circular economy: electronics, plastics, food and bio-economy, and business models and markets.[8]

Initiatives affiliated with PACE include:[1]

  • African Circular Economy Alliance, including senior representatives from the governments of Rwanda, Nigeria, South Africa, Niger, Senegal, Malawi, and the DRC[9]
  • Circular Electronics in Nigeria
  • Circular Electronics in China
  • Capital Equipment Coalition with Philips and numerous other partners[10][11][12]
  • Global Battery Alliance with over 30 partners[13][14]
  • New Vision for Electronics
  • Global Plastics Action Partnership, which includes the governments of Canada and the United Kingdom as well as global companies including The Coca-Cola Company, Dow, PepsiCo and Nestle[15]
  • New Plastics Economy
  • Cities & Circular Economy for Food
  • 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) for a Circular Economy[16]
  • Scaling Circular Procurement
  • Circular Supply Chain Accelerator

In January 2019, PACE released a report entitled "A New Circular Vision for Electronics: Time for a Global Reboot" (in support of the United Nations E-waste Coalition).[17][18]
