Towards a Circular Economy
the current linear economy
The linear economy is a 'take-make-waste' approach which generates a lot of waste and uses up finite resources.
It is not considered to be sustainable in the long term.
the circular economy
The circular economy is a key concept when discussing a sustainable future.
The aim of a circular economy is to keep valuable materials in a closed-loop system. This minimises the use of resources and reduces the amount of waste, pollution and carbon emissions.
