Sustainable Supply Chains, The Circular Economy Solution

THEME: Circular Economy, Procurement, Sustainability

The circular economy is gaining worldwide recognition as a remodeling of our current “take-make-waste” system into one that circulates resources by sharing, reducing, reusing, repairing, remanufacturing, upcycling, and recycling. With so many applications of the circular economy throughout the supply chain, it can be tough to know where to start or even how to reimagine a new way of operating.
