“A sustainable and circular economy can unlock tremendous value for society and in equal measure protect virgin resources. When combined with the use of new materials and technology, we can protect nature, address climate change, and create opportunity for the world’s children. WRAP’s international growth is essential to help provide the necessary frameworks and expertise to embed the circular economy into our everyday lives”.
