Moving away from the ‘take, make, use, discard’ approach of linear economies is essential if the world is going to transform to sustainability. Circular economies design the re-use and recycling of materials into products and services to maximise the value from them and minimise waste.
The Circular Economy Network at IEMA is led by a steering group of members from different sectors of the economy. The role of the steering group is to oversee the delivery of an annual work programme of activities, including webinars, workshops, reports and much more.
