Roughly 60% of our CO2 footprint results from the way we handle materials. The solution lies in transitioning to a circular economy, where materials and products have value within the economic system for as long as possible.
In a circular economy, products are repaired, hold high second-hand value, are upgradeable, can be easily disassembled, and transformed into new products. Additionally, the used materials are fully recyclable or biodegradable. New business models involving shared and leased products also play a significant role in a circular economy.
