Circular Economy Guide – Embracing CE in Your Own Operations

November 21, 2017 | Guidance,

In a world of finite materials, the linear model of take-make-dispose is not sustainable…but a circular one is.

Embracing a resource efficient and circular economy is a requirement for successful and profitable businesses of the future. Without doing so, some organizations may find themselves subject to future price and raw material volatility, competitive disadvantage and customer concern. Lots of organizations are looking at parts of the circular economy but those who want to take leadership need to make it their core business.

What is a Circular Economy?

The Anthesis Definition

A circular economy engages stakeholders from a wide range of industries to stimulate supply chains that keep materials and resources at their highest utilization and value throughout their lifecycles. A circular economy considers the market, environmental and social costs of goods and services.

It supports the use of renewable resources; minimizes risks associated with finite raw materials; uses energy most efficiently in the production and delivery of goods and services; and preserves natural capital, including preventing negative impacts on water resources.

The creation of an economy based on these principals stimulates innovation and creates sustainable long term growth that supports the development of new employment opportunities and generates demand for new skills.
