Circular Economy Standards
The Earth has limited resources to meet the seemingly unlimited needs of its users. A systems approach to conserve resources at every level has always been relevant and has gained even higher importance in recent years. Moving from a take-make-waste, linear economy model to a more closed-loop, circular economy model, is an imperative for a safer, more secure, and more sustainable world. Achieving net-zero carbon dioxide emissions can help to ensure we can accomplish this goal.
We hosted a discussion on the importance of circular economy and the role of standards in helping to advance this model for global sustainability and international trade.
