The WBCSD’s Guide for the Circular Economy Practitioner offers lots of insight into over 70 strategies, 40 examples, 90 resources. These are tools that a company can use to study and consider the changes necessary to go into the circular economy. It’s a living catalogue to include examples, strategies and tools in the circular economy concept.
The circular economy moves away from the traditional “take-make-waste” economic model to one that is circular-regenerative by design. When we retain as much value as possible from products and its parts, we are holding on to resources. We create a system that promotes longer product life, sharing and resource recovery.
By applying circular economy ideas, companies can design out waste. They can increase resource productivity and maintain the use of natural resources that are already in the commercial stream.
The Circular Economy Practitioner Guide is designed to help you accelerate your transition towards the circular economy.
WBCSD’s Guide is an early example of what is available to help businesses get started.
