Education & Knowledge

Always learning.

Here are a few resources we have found useful along the way.

Circular Economy

What is it?
The circular economy is a system where materials never become waste and nature is regenerated. In a circular economy, products and materials are kept in circulation through processes like maintenance, reuse, refurbishment, remanufacture, recycling, and composting. The circular economy tackles climate change and other global challenges, like biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution, by decoupling economic activity from the consumption of finite resources.

The circular economy is based on three principles, driven by design:

- Eliminate waste and pollution
- Circulate products and materials (at their highest value)
- Regenerate nature

Underpinned by a transition to renewable energy and materials, the circular economy is a resilient system that is good for business, people, and the environment.
