We extract over 84 billion tonnes of materials per year to meet the functional needs of society. Yet, only 9% of these materials are recycled back into our economies.

Estimates suggest that by 2050, if current trends continue, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean.

Disease caused by pollution were responsible for more than 9 million premature deaths in 2015 – 16% of deaths worldwide or 3 x times more deaths than from AIDS, TB, and Malaria combined.

In a circular economy there is no waste and at worst attempt – there is less. Recycling is NOT circular,however recycling is a single step toward a larger systemic change.

Leanne Kemp is Queensland’s third Chief Entrepreneur, following on from Steve Baxter and inaugural Chief, Mark Sowerby.

Leanne is the Founder & CEO of Everledger, a leading emerging technology enterprise that tracks the provenance of high-value assets on a global digital ledger in an authenticated immutable manner.

Using her extensive background in emerging technology, business, jewellery and insurance, Leanne is pushing boundaries with Everledger in building a global verification system that asserts transparency along the entire supply chain process.
