As our perceptions of waste begin to shift, businesses are sprouting up across the globe and taking advantage of these opportunities to close open loops and birth new markets.
McKinsey & Co estimate that the transition to a circular economy represents an economic opportunity in excess of 1 trillion globally. The principles of the circular economy focus on redesigning industrial systems to more closely resemble living ecosystems.
