Circular Economy


The Circular Economy Research Mobilisation Group takes a fresh approach to long-established topics in sustainable development, materials management and value retention. The term Circular Economy concerns the status quo of industrial economy as an extractive process generating waste and pollution as an externality, and has been adopted by numerous businesses as a driver for innovation. The drive is towards keeping resources in use for as long as possible, avoiding waste by recovering and regenerating products and materials, and focusing on positive society-wide benefits from economic activity. The Circular Economy Research Mobilisation Group is inherently interdisciplinary and brings together scholars from a wide range of fields, including marketing, supply chains, design, engineering, law, politics, and development studies.
