What is the 2020 Sustainability Awards Program
The 2020 Sustainability Awards program takes place under the aegis of the Business Intelligence Group and is judged by active working professionals who are experienced and knowledgeable in their fields.
It aims to reward companies that successfully place sustainability at the heart of their business practices and to recognize that they are setting themselves apart from their competitors in a very real way.
Our Circular Economy Report is a way of extending that commitment to our clients and of boosting the number of companies that undertake to protect the planet as they go about their business.
The Circular Economy: its aims and our contribution
The circular economy is an idea that has come into its own in recent years as awareness has grown that resources available on “Spaceship Earth” are not infinite. A linear system based on “take, make, dispose” industrial processes is therefore not sustainable.
The circular economy model seeks to remove waste and pollution, including greenhouse gas emissions, at the design stage. This helps explain why we put renewable power sources at the heart of our energy offering.
The circular economy also aims to keep products and materials in use for as long as possible. This means designing for durability, reuse and recycling in order to keep components and materials circulating through the economy.
The Meaning of Circular Economy
The Circular Economy is the new economic frontier where the concepts of population growth and limited resources are the key drivers. We need an answer, and the five business models of the Circular Economy can definitely come to our aid.
