Innovators Magazine: Circular economy database launched

Innovators Magazine: Circular economy database launched. “A new global database drawing on information from 60 countries has been launched to support the growth of the circular economy. Compiled by the Circular Economy Club (CEC), on the back of its international Mapping Week project the open-source database is designed to accelerate the impact of circularity.” I didn’t know what a circular economy referred to; the Ellen MacArthur Foundation helped me out: “Looking beyond the current ‘take, make and dispose’ extractive industrial model, the circular economy is restorative and regenerative by design. Relying on system-wide innovation, it aims to redefine products and services to design waste out, while minimising negative impacts.”
