Contributing to the circular economy value chain means actively participating in a system that aims to minimize resource consumption, waste generation, and environmental impact while maximizing the efficient use and reuse of materials throughout their lifecycle.

When you contribute to the circular economy value chain, you engage in activities that help close the loop and reduce the linear flow of resources. Here are a few examples of how you can contribute:
By actively participating in these and other related activities, you help create a more sustainable and resource-efficient economy that minimizes waste, reduces environmental impact, and promotes long-term prosperity.
