What is a circular economy?

1) Design out waste and pollution

2) Keep products and materials in use

Regenerate natural systems

 

 

 

 

A circular economy seeks to rebuild capital, whether this is financial, manufactured, human, social or natural. This ensures enhanced flows of goods and services. The system diagram illustrates the continuous flow of technical and biological materials through the ‘value circle’.
