Circular Economy – now or never

Climate change, the overexploitation of the finite resources of our earth and high population growth present historically new challenges to the global economy. It is not a question of ideological questions, but at the heart of the matter is how economic systems can be transformed.

The objective: our children and grandchildren have a future worth living.

Circular Economy is not a new invention. The idea itself is decades old. But today we have the technical possibilities to realize the Circular Economy with digitalization, modern sensor technology, advances in material sciences and communication technologies. Politics is called upon to create the framework conditions. Companies must assume responsibility for their products, develop and implement new business models.

The Circular Economy extends far beyond the narrow waste sector and recycling.
