Going Circular Award
As pressure on resources grows, we need to shift to a more circular economy – where the lifecycles of materials will be maximised, optimised and continued indefinitely through continuous reuse.
Traditional businesses are predominantly based on a linear ‘take-make-waste’ model. But as pressure on resources grows we need to shift to a more circular economy. This is where the lifecycle of materials is maximised, usage optimised, and at the end of life all materials are re-used – keeping resource and material in useful ‘loops’.
Opportunities for circular economy innovation abound at every stage in a business. Going circular means designing your products or services to help create a low carbon circular economy in New Zealand.
