A regenerative economic model — the circular economy — is starting to help companies create more value while reducing their dependence on scarce resources.

By applying the principles of a circular economy—a system that is regenerative by design — forward-looking companies can seize growth opportunities while laying the groundwork for a new industrial era that benefits companies and economies alike.
