The world must find a solution that would reconcile the growing needs of people with the scarce available environmental resources. Could a circular economy be this solution? Our calculations show that even a small change in the Polish economy – 1 per cent savings in the cost of materials and energy – may result in an annual GDP growth of PLN 19.5 billion.
Julia Patorska, Leader of the Economic Analyses Team at Deloitte

The conclusions of the editorial debate on the circular economy and the challenges related to the realization of this idea in Poland. The discussion was attended by Irena Pichola, Partner, Leader of the Sustainability Team in Poland and in Central Europe.

Our lives get longer, more and more of us live in cities, and our financial situation is improving. With the growth of the population and the increasing income, the consumer group is increasing, including primarily the middle class, the economic impact of which is enormous. The projections show that middle-class consumption can be responsible for one-third of global GDP in 2030 years.
