Building a Regenerative, Restorative Economy
An Introduction to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation
The circular economycircular 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. has been established as a compelling concept with a clear business case to be applied to the redesign of everyday products and fundamentally new operating models for businesses. In this live conversation, members of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation team will discuss and debate some of the underlying values and topics relevant to the circular economy.
For example, how much does the circular economy differentiate from sustainability or the notion of recycling on steroids? Is it more about efficiency or effectiveness, and does that even matter? Is it better implemented as a top-down or bottom-up approach?
