    Full cycle: investing for a circular economy
    Emma Berntman
    A flood of recent media coverage has highlighted how society’s addiction to plastics is pushing the environment to the limit. But behind the demonisation of plastic itself lies the need for a paradigm shift in the way we produce and consume goods – one in which we can participate as investors as well as consumers. Despite the recent media focus on plastic as an environmental issue, its popularity as a raw material continues to rise. Half of the total amount of synthetic plastic resins and fibres ever manufactured have been produced in the past 13 years[footnote]1“Production, use, and fate of all plastics ever made,” by by Geyer, R; Janbeck, J R, Law, K L.
