A circular economyA systems solution framework that tackles global challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution. It is based on three principles, driven by design: eliminate waste and pollution, circulate products and materials (at their highest value), and regenerate nature. redesign of São Paulo’s food system represents a $140 million opportunity with the potential to drive down CO2 emissions and enhance local biodiversity. Navigating between its rural and urban territories, ‘A taste of circular economy in São Paulo’ shows how different actors within the city are working together to realise this opportunity in building a more regenerative, distributed and inclusive food system.
São Paulo recently became the first city to join the Foundation’s Network as a Strategic Partner and will continue to apply the circular economy as a framework for systems solutions and transformation to address critical priorities including economic development and climate change.
