Circular Economy

KEEPING. Renewable, recyclable or biodegradable inputs for production; recovering resources and materials from end-of-life products; extending product lifecycles by reusing, repairing and reselling; sharing platforms for collective usage; product-as-a-service models, and moreā€¦

Companies can redesign how they operate by reducing materials, waste and pollution upfront during design and development; finding innovative ways of extending the useful life of components and materials; and offering services instead of selling products. Communities and residents grow circular economies naturally by relentlessly reusing, repairing and recycling. A circular economy is a boon for new, secure jobs: put simply, keeping our stuff for longer means keeping more jobs in the local economy.
