Like organizations of all sizes, small businesses are building action plans to eliminate waste and pollution and protect our environment in the face of mounting challenges. But many don’t know where to begin. Simple solutions that embrace the circular economy are an excellent place to start.
To help small businesses transition into the circular economy, we’ve created a framework specifically for them to understand, design, and implement circular principles in their businesses. Our Toolkit explains why taking care of the environment and society can be profitable for businesses while avoiding future climate-related risks. It provides the tools, processes, and rationale to understand, design, validate, and implement circular economy strategies and business models into the organization and value chains.

Responding to the urgency of this moment, a group of generous donors will match every dollar up to $100,000 raised through December 31, 2022. Your gift will enable Building Markets to adapt and scale our programs to reach more small businesses creating critical jobs around the world.
