The Circular Economy

Tuesday 11th June 2013

Our current industrial processes and lifestyles are depleting the world’s natural resources to create objects that will often end up in landfills, all while churning out unwanted by-products like industrial waste.  Will this linear system work for us long-term?

The circular economy provides a framework for systems level re-design and offers an opportunity to harness innovation and creativity to enable a positive, restorative economy.  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 Circular Economy 100 is a global platform bringing together leading companies, emerging innovators and regions to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.  It aims to provide members with privileged access to a range of academic and practical tools, leveraging the platform’s existing knowledge base, education assets, ongoing research efforts and insight into other companies' experience.
