consumption models. A circular economy is an alternative to this model. It aims to keep products and materials in the value chain for a longer period and to recover raw materials after the lifetime of products for their next use. 1. Waste potential! Towards circular economy in cities, 16th European Forum on Eco-innovation (2014). Available at Circular economy (CE) is a term that exists since the 1970s and has acquired greater importance in the past few years, partly due to the scarcity of natural resources available in the environment and changes in consumer behavior. Cutting-edge technologies such as big data and internet of things (IoT) have the potential to leverage the adoption of CE concepts by organizations and society. . It replaces the end-of-life concept with restoration, shifts towards the use of renewable energy, eliminates the use of toxic chemicals, which impair reuse and return to the biosphere, and aims for the elimination of waste through the superior design of materials, products, systems and. a circular economy will see an expansion of innovations already taking place across the industry. It is up to the members of EFPIA to find an innovative circular economy approach based on business model options, current legislation and the circular economy principles outlined by the Ellen MacArthur foundation
1. Circular Economy: an overview In a circular economy1, open production systems - in which resources are extracted, used to make products and become waste after the product is consumed - are replaced by systems that retain resource value and conserve energy2.

This has been defined as an industrial economy that is restorative or regenerative by intention and design (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2013) involving elements of a closed loop of material flow to relinquish the highest value of products and their components. Yet this solution of having our cake and eating it too is not so simple The concept Circular Economy (CE) describes an industrial economy in which material flows keep cir-culating at a high rate (in terms of quality, property, function, range of use) without the materials entering the biosphere, unless they are biological nutrients (based on Ellen MacArthur Foundation 2013 study, see also Figure 1) .

In its recent reports, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation has focused on the economic and business benefits of such a circular model of growth. In this report, the World Economic Forum and the Foundation, with analytics provided by McKinsey & Company, acting as project adviser, joined forces to reconcile the concept of scaling a circular economy within the reality of a global economy and complex. Abstract. The circular economy is a new way of thinking about the future and how we organize ourselves, our economies and societies. It is a positive and restorative approach that goes 'beyond sustainability': rather than minimizing the harm we do to natural ecosystems, (e.g. through recycling a percentage of products) we can seek to do them good (Webster & Johnson, 2009) Issuu is a digital publishing platform that makes it simple to publish magazines, catalogs, newspapers, books, and more online.

The concept of a Circular economy (CE) is receiving increased attention as an alternative to the take-make-dispose-system that exists today (Stahel, 2016).The Ellen MacArthur Foundation describes the circular economy as an 'industrial system that is restorative or regenerative by intention and design' (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2013) while the European Action Plan states.
Twelve months after the launch of the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, in collaboration with the UN Environment Programme, has published its first annual progress report.. It provides an unprecedented level of transparency on how almost 200 businesses and governments are changing and reducing their plastic production and use Nowadays, this Blue economy industry (i.e. all the activities involving oceans, seas and coasts, which directly employed over 4 million people in the European Union (EU) and generated €658 billion of turnover in 2017 ) is facing different regulations to provide an answer to the current environmental challenges, promoting a circular economy strategy
The shift to the circular economy is impacting all aspects of the mining and metals industry. Take gold, for example. At today's prices, the gold in one mobile phone is worth about $1 and 41 mobile phones can yield as much gold as one tonne of gold ore.1 So, should mining companies switch their attention from tried and teste a circular economy, and sometimes, plastic packaging can be avoided altogether while maintaining utility. Reuse models are applied where relevant, reducing the need for single-use packaging While improving recycling is crucial, we cannot recycle our way out of the plastic issues we currently face The Ellen MacArthur Foundation was launched in 2010 with the aim of accelerating the transition to a circular economy.

How can economic incentives such as taxation A circular economy (often referred to simply as circularity) is an economic system aimed at eliminating waste and the continual use of resources. Circular systems employ reuse, sharing, repair, refurbishment, remanufacturing and recycling to create a closed-loop system, minimising the use of resource inputs and the creation of waste, pollution and carbon emissions The emblem of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, a set of nested circles, was on Dame Ellen's teal hoodie when we met in her headquarters, an old sailmaker's loft on the Isle of Wight
