Given the increasing recognition of the negative impacts of extractive, linear economies, ‘circular economy’ is gaining traction as a model to promote sustainability-oriented innovation and to accelerate resource sustainability. Circular economy is a growing area of interest for achieving sustainability across multiple sectors, and it is noteworthy
that in Africa, many businesses are already leading the way in the circularity transition. Circular businesses offer services or goods that, through their creation, sale, use or dismantling, can positively affect consumption and production patterns, regenerate communities and ecosystems, or improve resource productivity. The circular economy therefore
offers a great deal of possibilities and opportunities for businesses.
