Circular Economy Hub | Business in the Community

Helping our members make the most of the Circular Economy

The Circular Economy is a regenerative economic system in which resources, and the value provided by them, are instead retained within the system; this also protects the environment by reducing demand for extraction of raw materials, as well as reducing the need to dispose of waste products and materials.

The guides provided in the resources section of this Hub will explain this concept in more detail, and suggest some actions for you to integrate this concept into your organisation to capitalise from the economic opportunities which this approach can provide.
