9 principles for a circular economy


Sustainable development is hardly imaginable without a consistent circular economy. However, turning away from a predominantly linear economy requires many political, economic and social decisions.
The German Environment Agency has now developed principles for politics, business and society, which systematically outline the objectives, scope, maxims for action, requirements and success factors of a circular economy. The nine principles are intended to help develop a common understanding of the circular economy and create a strategic orientation framework for its implementation.
