Circular Economy

A reorganized economic model focused on coordinating production and consumption systems in closed circuits.

The circular economy is an economic model of production and consumption based on the reduction, reuse, recovery and recycling of products, materials and resources, which end up gaining a second life. Inspired by the mechanisms of natural ecosystems, it contradicts the linear consumption model (which will be discussed in the next article), based on the “make-use-throw away” principle.

Advantages for companies:

  • greater innovation and efficiency in the production of products;

  • greater security and protection for companies against raw material shortages and price volatility;

  • optimization of waste management, which enhances recycling and reduces landfills;

  • greater energy savings;

  • increasing competitiveness and promoting innovation.

Advantages for the general population:

  • more durable and innovative products;

  • new opportunities in the labor market and greater social integration (estimated to create 580 000 jobs in the European Union);

  • reducing pressure on the environment by maintaining climate and biodiversity and by reducing air, soil and water pollution.
