Circular economy would create millions of jobs.
The Secretary-General argued that simultaneous action along these three lines would bring great economic benefits and stressed that a circular, zero-waste economy would lead to the creation of hundreds of millions of jobs.
“But all of that requires global collaboration,” he emphasized, and considered that the mere celebration of International Zero Waste Day demonstrates that the political will exists to combat the source of pollution posed by garbage.
“Let us work as one to build a waste-free circular future for people and the planet,” Guterres said.
The heads of UN agencies joined the Secretary-General in calling for a circular economy.
