Looking beyond the current take-make-waste extractive industrial model, Circular Economy (CE) aims to redefine growth, focusing on positive society-wide benefits. It entails gradually decoupling of economic activity from the consumption of finite resources, and designing waste out of the system. We believe that CE will reform the management of resources and residues in the interest of economy, livelihoods and the environment. We have taken a lead in promoting awareness and capacity building on CE in India through newsletters, roundtables, knowledge products, Summer and Winter Schools.
