Regenerative systems in which resource input and waste, emission, and energy leakage are minimized by slowing, closing, and narrowing energy and material loops

A circular economy is where production, services, and information take a regenerative approach aimed at minimizing waste and making the most of resources. This method allows for the greatest retention of valuable products, parts, materials, and intelligence. It also encourages reuse, upcycling, recycling, refurbishment, and longer life while producing the least amount of waste possible.
