Everything we do, work, live, travel, and socialize can either regenerate our planet and the living systems we depend on or destroy it. “A circular economy aims to maintain the value of products, materials, and resources for as long as possible by returning them into the product cycle at the end of their use while minimizing waste generation. The fewer products we discard, the fewer materials we extract, and the better for our environment.
This process starts at the beginning of a product’s lifecycle: smart product design and production processes can help save resources, avoid inefficient waste management, and create new business opportunities.” Instead of using systems of extraction, pollution, and waste that ultimately lead to lost value, CE, as a tool, can help us design systems to reuse, repair, and regenerate, creating value opportunities for business and society. Challenges to CE can be listed as a. Demand is outstripping supply, b. We are failing to meet the basic needs of billions of people; c. Poverty, hunger, and access to drinking water and sanitation are worsening.
Sustainable Development is the central challenge of our times. It is both a way of looking at the world, focusing on the interlinkages of economic, social, and environmental change, and describing our shared aspirations for a decent life.
