Circular Economy and Ecodesign
The role of ecodesign is to create innovative solutions for products and services, emphasizing the rational use of resources, reducing waste, creating new innovative business models that look for alternatives to products and their materials, rather than turning them into waste.
Circular economy is an approach in which economic growth is separated from the over-exploitation of natural resources and the associated hazardous environmental effects. No material is wasted, but resources and materials circulate endlessly, thus producing longer value. Products shall be designed and constructed in such a way that products, their components and materials are reused and recycled. The aim is to reduce the need for new, natural raw materials and to ensure that substances that return to nature do not cause undesirable side effects.
