Designing out waste

A circular economy is a sustainable system that aims to eliminate waste and make the most out of our resources. Learn more and get involved with our handy guide.

A circular economy is a new way to design, build and use things with minimal waste and maximum regeneration. It’s an alternative to a traditional linear economy we all know (take, make, waste), where we keep resources in use for as long as we can, mining the maximum value from them by regenerating materials at the end of their life-cycle. 

A circular economy is a more sustainable model that’s regenerative by design and aims to reduce finite resources consumption. Implementing this model into your business is a great way to go further than many corporate social responsibility strategies currently in place, as it will permeate every aspect of your business’ activity. It also has some fantastic economic benefits if implemented correctly. 

With increasing pressure on finite resources, it’s more important than ever to administer a conscious system into business models, and it is possible to do. Does this sound like something your business or company can benefit from?
