A new report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation argues that by embarking on a circular economy transformation, India could create direct economic benefits for businesses and citizens while reducing negative externalities. Having experienced sustained and rapid growth over the past two decades, India is facing a rapid urbanisation and industrialisation, with the associated negative externalities that this entails. Yet this scenario is not inevitable, as the country can pre-empt linear lock-ins.

A new report, published by the Global Green Growth Institute, in association with the International Institute for Environment and Development and the Green Economy Coalition, suggests that most green growth efforts to date have focused on the economy and the environment but that for it to fulfil its promise, it needs to focus on people – to tackle the poverty, inequality and exclusion that constrain both growth and environmental sustainability, to realise women’s and men’s aspirations and to gain broad societal support. 

Green Alliance’s new report examines the state of the mobile market, which is stagnating, due in part to the slowing pace of innovation in mobile phones over the past few years, with new devices taking much longer to become functionally obsolete.  This is resulting in the emergence of a new mobile market, based on capturing the value that exists in older devices.  This circular market is poised to grow, with resale estimated to grow four to five times faster than the growth in the overall smartphone market in 2016.
