Accelerating New Zealand's transition to a circular economy.
A circular economy is one where the lifecycles of materials are maximised, usage optimised and at the end of life all materials are reutilised.
It is restorative by design and underpinned by the use of renewable energy. It is a sustainable and viable alternative to the dominant ‘take-make-waste’ linear model.
The Circular Economy Accelerator is part of the Sustainable Business Network and is focussed on speeding up the adoption of the circular economy in New Zealand.
