Sustainability is becoming more important for citizens, companies and organizations. Hence the growing adherence to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. And although there’s still much ground to be covered, it has become clear that a circular economy is a key lever for achieving an important number of sustainability goals. A circular economy’s quintessential feature ? To be as regenerative and waste-free as possible.

Yet, how do you transition from a linear to a more circular economy ?

To help organizations embrace the circular economy, the International Standardization Organisations (ISO) is developing a set of standards for the circular economy. Interested ? Whether you work for a commercial company, government, NGO, or a university, a more circular economy can considerably benefit your organisation.
