Circular economy

What is circular economy?

Circularity represents a model of production and consumption in which products and services are designed to allow sharing and reuse. It is in direct contrast to the linear model, which generates unused waste. One of the reasons why companies implement circular principles is not only the growing pressure of legislation, but also pressure customers and stakeholders. However, by adopting circular strategies, business can also achieve significant efficiencies and added value.

Circular economy strategies may bring various benefits to companies, such as:

  • reduced risk of disruption and price volatility of supplied raw materials;
  • higher productivity and competitiveness;
  • innovations in the production process, which can lead to a further increase in effectiveness and cost savings; and
  • new business opportunities and possibilities to enter new markets.
