THE INTERSECTION

Technology is changing the way that cities, communities, businesses, NGOs and people access what they need. Understanding the impact of the platform and sharing economies and shifting to an access over ownership model can support a regenerative vs extractive economic solution that enables a transition to a Circular Economy.

THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

By using resources more effectively, a circular economy aims to decouple economic growth from the use of natural resources and ecosystems. Creating a regenerative system in which resource input and waste, emission, and energy leakage are minimised by slowing, closing, and narrowing energy and material loops. This can be achieved through long-lasting design, maintenance, repair, reuse, remanufacturing, refurbishing, and recycling. This is in contrast to a linear economy which is a ‘take, make, dispose’ model of production.

Herein you will find resources to help you get a better understanding of the Circular Economy, as well as information about how we can help you and your organisation.
