5 Sustainability Trends for 2023

What’s on the horizon for sustainability in 2023? At CheckSammy, we’re always working with our customers to help improve their sustainability efforts and stay ahead of the curve when it comes to industry trends. Here are a few of the sustainability trends we expect to see in 2023 that organizations need to have on their radar.

Five 2023 Sustainability Trends to Keep An Eye On

The emphasis on sustainability continues to grow worldwide as governments and municipalities strengthen their ESG commitments and legislation. Let’s take a look at some of the top 2023 sustainability trends for businesses:

Trend 1: Increased Focus on Circularity

The concept of a circular economy, where resources are kept in use (“circulating”) for as long as possible, is gaining traction in the business world. Companies are starting to see the value in designing products and systems that can be easily disassembled, repaired, refurbished, and remanufactured, rather than being thrown away after their initial use. We expect to see more businesses adopt circular business models and work to close the loop on their material flows.

Trend 2: Growth of the Circular Plastics Economy

Plastic waste is a major problem, but there is also an opportunity to turn this waste into a resource. The circular plastics economy aims to keep plastic in circulation and out of the environment by collecting, sorting, and reprocessing it into new products or materials. We expect to see more investment in infrastructure and technologies that enable the circular plastics economy (like soft plastic recycling), as well as the development of new plastic products and materials that are designed for reuse and recycling.

Trend 3: Greater Emphasis on the Environmental Impact of Products

Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the environmental impact of the products they buy, and more and more people are starting to demand more sustainable options. This trend is driving companies to consider the full life cycle of their products, from raw materials to disposal, and to make changes that reduce their environmental footprint. We expect to see more companies adopt eco-design principles and use materials that are easier to recycle or repurpose.

Trend 4: Rise of Digital Waste

The proliferation of electronic devices and the increasing pace of technological change is leading to a surge in digital waste, or e-waste. Electronic waste (e-waste) is a growing problem, as it often contains toxic substances that can harm the environment and human health if not properly handled. We expect to see more companies adopt programs to recycle and properly dispose of electronic waste, as well as invest in technologies that extend the lifespan of electronic products.

Trend 5: Increased Regulation and Incentives

Governments around the world are starting to take more aggressive action to address environmental issues, including waste and resource management. We expect to see more regulations and incentives aimed at reducing waste and promoting sustainable practices, such as extended producer responsibility programs and landfill bans on certain materials.
