Designing out waste

Design out waste

The low carbon circular economy offers a truly sustainable alternative to the dominant economic model of ‘take, make and waste’.

In a circular economy resources are never abandoned to become waste. Products are designed to be safe and easy to manage in cycles of production and reproduction. By minimising the use of new resources, the circular economy reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

SBN’s circular economy projects are designed to speed up this inevitable and necessary transition for Aotearoa New Zealand.
