Waste to Wealth: Creating advantage in a circular economy

Accenture’s book, “Waste to Wealth,” examines how the transition to a circular economy may be the biggest revolution and opportunity for how we organize production and consumption in our global economy in 250 years. Powered by advances in digital, it represents a huge opportunity for companies to create a circular advantage.

Accenture research indicates a $4.5 trillion reward for achieving sustainable businesses by 2030. That's not waste in the traditional sense of garbage, but the enormous underutilization of natural resources. It’s about eliminating the very concept of ‘waste’ and recognizing everything has a value.
