About the Webinar
The circular economy is a modal of production and consumption which involves sharing, leasing, reusing, repairing, refurbishing and recycling existing materials and products as long as possible. In this way, the life cycle of products is extended.
In practice, it implies reducing waste to a minimum. When a product reaches the end of its life, its materials are kept within the economy wherever possible. These can be productively used again and again, thereby creating further value. This is a departure from the traditional, linear economic model, which is based on a take-make-consume throwaway pattern. This model relies on large quantities of cheap, easily accessible materials and energy.
The webinar will cover a brief overview about the need to transition from linear to circular economic model in order to use finite resources more efficiently forever growing population. It will also cover global practices/ initiatives taken on circular economy so far and actions taken by Government of India to promote sustainable production and consumption by reuse, repair, refurbish and recycle.
