Circular Economy

What …

Definition: WBCSD (World Business Council for Sustainable Development) “the goal of circular economy is to retain as much value as possible from resources, products, parts and materials to create a system that allows for long life, optimal reuse, refurbishment, remanufacturing and recycling.”

Why …

Population and GDP growth are driving demand for resources in a way which is not sustainable.  If we continue with a business-as-usual approach, we will exceed the Earth’s capacity by 400% in 2050, with devastating consequences.  This is one of the reasons that the World Economic Forum considers biodiversity and eco-system collapse to be one of the most impactful risks to the global economy (2019).

For business, the risks are real. So too are the opportunities: the circular economy is forecast at USD 4.5 trillion by 2030.
