The circular economy is an innovative model for rethinking our approach to products and services. Pioneers are reconfiguring and disrupting the way we think about delivering goods and services; shifting the way we extract, make, consume and repurpose the material in our products to ensure emissions are reduced and resources are efficiently used and kept in circulation as long as possible.
Underpinned by a transition to renewable energy sources, the three principles of a circular economy are:
Design out waste and pollution
Keep products and materials in use
Regenerate natural systems
