State of Play for Circular Built Environment in Oceania

This report examines the challenges and opportunities arising from transitioning to a circular economy in Australia and New Zealand. The fact is that as populations rise, material use increases. Historically, we have seen a trend globally whereby material use per person increases as incomes grow. In developed economies, waste has largely been ‘out of sight, out of mind’.

State of Play for Circular Built Environment in Gulf Cooperation Council countries

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries are among the fastest developing in the world. However, their economies are currently largely based on a linear model which follows a ‘take, make, dispose’ approach. In addition, the region’s resources consumption rates are among the highest globally. This places a strain on finite natural resources and increases the demand for energy.

Sustainability and Circularity in the Textile Value Chain - Global Stocktaking

The intention of this UNEP report is to apply an evidence-based value chain approach, mapping the textile value chain with its stakeholders, as well as environmental and socio-economic impacts along different value chain stages. Based on this analysis, the report identifies associated hotspots in all sustainability dimensions. Giving examples of the many initiatives that are already being undertaken, the report outlines gaps, barriers and opportunities to work towards a more sustainable and circular textile value chain, highlighting priority actions.

Top insights:

• Increasing consumption, manufacture and use of textile products affect the global climate, the quality of ecosystems and human health, through their high use of energy, chemicals, land, and water
• High social risks despite the much-needed employment and essential human services it provides
• High use of energy and/or natural resources: extensive use of chemicals in cotton cultivation & wet textile processing particularly impacts on human health & ecosystems
• Priority actions are 1) the need for stronger governance to drive the change; 2) the need for collaboration and financing to implement solutions; and 3) the need to change consumption habits

Circularity goes beyond incremental improvements, e.g. increasing resource efficiency, increasing recycling rates and decreasing hazardous chemical use, and requires a system-wide approach, transforming the way textiles are designed, produced, consumed, and disposed of. Achieving systemic changes will require coordinated actions by all stakeholders and across regions.
