The circular economy moves away from the traditional “take-make-dispose” economic model to one that is regenerative by design. The goal is to retain as much value as possible from products, parts and resources to create a system that allows for long life, sharing, digitization and resource recovery.

By applying these principles, companies can design out waste, increase resource productivity and decouple growth from natural resource consumption.

The Practitioner Guide is designed to help you accelerate your transition towards the circular economy.

Everyone has a role to play in moving towards a circular economy. Depending on your role within your company, there are various circular practices that you can implement.
