Why Circular Economy?

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.
