Sustainable and clean solutions stem from an understanding of life cycles and the circular economy. Ensuring sustainable growth requires smart and sustainable use of resources.
The circular economy forms he core of resource-smart and sustainable growth. It is a way of thinking and acting that makes the value of products and materials circulate in the economy for as long as possible. It is a kind of restoring system aiming at an eternal life cycle.
In practice this could mean, for example, that a product is designed in a way that the materials can be extracted and recycled as efficiently as possible. Longer service lives, recycling of materials, parts and components, utilisation of waste and minor flows, and various services are typical examples of the many ways in which the circular economy manifests itself.
