The circular economy is a new way of thinking about our growth model in the face of global competition for resources and the environmental impact of their use.
To combat this, Europe wants to make the transition to a stronger and greener economy, where resources are used in a more sustainable way. The circular economy aims to ‘close the loop’ of product lifecycles by keeping resources within the economy, which leads to better use of raw materials, products and waste.
