Circular Economy Award

Is your business a part of the Resource Revolution that re-invents, re-thinks and re-defines how we use materials? Then you are a part of the circular economy. You keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them while in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life. Participating in a circular economy means that your business or organization:

  • Reduces waste
  • Drives greater resource productivity
  • Addresses emerging resource security/scarcity issues in the future
  • Helps reduce the environmental impacts of production and consumption
  • Focuses on the three priority areas: Food and Drink; Clothing and Textiles; and Electricals and Electronics – all of which are underpinned by resource management
  • Implements plans to extract the maximum value and use from raw materials, products and waste, fostering energy savings and reducing Green House Gas emissions.
