For provide a global impetus to initiatives related to the circular economy transition, resource efficiency, sustainable consumption, and production patterns
Bringing together governments and relevant networks and organizations, the Global Alliance on Circular Economy and Resource Efficiency (GACERE) aims to provide a global impetus to initiatives related to the circular economy transition, resource efficiency, sustainable consumption, and production patterns, and inclusive and sustainable industrialization.
GACERE has been established by the European Commission on behalf of the European Union (EU), and by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), in coordination with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
In his remarks, LI Yong, Director General of UNIDO, said, “We will have a promising solution in our hands to safeguard and protect the natural wealth of our planet from climate, biodiversity, ocean, and land degradation catastrophes and address the ambition of developing countries for inclusive and sustainable industrialization if we choose a path to a circular economy and make this transition just. This will also enable economic prosperity, business opportunities, innovations, and green jobs.”
Eleven countries (Canada, Chile, Colombia, Japan, Kenya, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Peru, Rwanda, and South Africa) and the EU have joined the Alliance to date.
