Circular economy

In a circular economy, the value of products and materials is maintained for as long as possible.

Waste and resource use are minimised, and when a product reaches the end of its life, it is used again to create further value.

This may involve breaking up the original product to extract and recover reusable materials contained in it.

Ideally, the second and subsequent lives of products are designed into them from the outset.
