A Cooperative working on a circular economy
The best way to explain what a circular economy is, is to compare it to our current linear economy. In our current economic system, we extract resources from our planet at an ever-increasing pace, and turn them into a product that we mostly dispose after use. From the perspective of an individual or organization, that seems efficient. However, zooming out to a global level shows how unsustainable this approach is.
At Circle Economy, they believe it is time for a new economic approach: the circular economy. Circle Economy is a cooperative, and together with our members and partners they create industrial systems that are restorative by design by decoupling growth and resource needs.
They accelerate the transition towards a circular economy by providing insights in what a circular future might look like for a company, a region or even worldwide, and by coming up with scenarios for how to get there. Moreover, they provide a powerful network, tools and experience to the members of our cooperative to turn these scenarios into reality.
