Simply put, a circular economy is a systemic approach to economic development designed to benefit businesses, society, and the environment. In contrast to the ‘take-make-waste’ linear model, a circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources, by designing-out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use for as long as possible, and regenerating natural systems. Business and Political leaders alike are coming to the realisation that continuous economic growth through endless consumption is not a sustainable way forward. Join us as we explore how circular economies may provide hope for sustainability and economic prosperity to co-exist.
