Creating a Circular Economy with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation

Old System

TAKE - MAKE - WASTE

The current system is no longer working for businesses, people or the environment. We take resources from the ground to make products, which we use, and when we no longer want them, throw them away. This is called a LINEAR ECONOMY.

New System

DESIGN - KEEP - REGENERATE

circular economy

It’s a new way to design, make, and use things within planetary boundaries. Shifting the system involves everyone and everything: businesses, governments, and individuals; our cities, our products, and our jobs. By designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems we can reinvent everything. These are the principals that Go Green Sustainability work with and towards in both our consultation and certification services.
