What is circular economy?

In essence, the circular economy is an economic model designed to address the challenges of increasing resource scarcity, driven by narrowing product lifespans and escalating demand. In general, circular economies work by slowing, closing and narrowing our flows of material and resource costs, reducing material leakages in our supply chains to ultimately promote economic and circular resilience for businesses and societies across the globe.
