The world needs pioneering solutions to ensure that economic growth and increased well-being are no longer based on the wasteful use and discarding of natural resources. The ideal circular economy is a closed loop in which items are designed for shareability, durability, repair and reuse; where pollution is designed out of the system, and used materials flow back in as valuable inputs, rather than out, as waste. In a circular economy, the foundation for earnings will be in the provision of services and digital solutions, rather than product offerings.
