Why is Circular Economy important?
A circular economy, sometimes also referred to as circularity, is an economic system based on recirculation of resources and regeneration of natural systems thereby benefiting businesses, society, and the environment. This particular approach to economic development, in contrast to the take-make-waste linear model, is aimed to reduce our dependence on finite resources.
The circular economy aims to change the paradigm in relation to the linear economy, by limiting the environmental impact and waste of resources, as well as increasing efficiency at all stages of the product economy.
