About Circular Economy Showcase

A circular economy aims to maximize value and eliminate waste by improving the design of materials, products, systems and business models.

Circular economy strategies encourage:

  • The design of long lasting, reusable and easily recyclable products
  • Decreasing the use of virgin materials and non-renewable resources and increasing the use of renewable resources and recycled materials
  • Shifting from “waste management” to “resource recovery” where everything has a value and zero waste goes to landfill
  • Shifting from linear supply chains that produce disposable products to circular supply chains that produce ongoing services (product-as-service)
  • Dramatically reducing the negative environmental aspects of economic development (such as pollution) through carbon-neutrality, using non-toxic-materials and other strategies
