Some experts believe the next adaptation of sustainability will be circularity; the challenge is determining how to build circular business models (CBMs) successfully into a company’s larger strategies. From a technical standpoint, this means optimizing specific aspects within CBMs - e.g., promoting renewable options, extending resource value and product life (enabling multiple cycles, re-using, etc.), recovering resources (creating value from waste, industrial symbiosis, recycling, etc.) and others. Examples of such are featured in this month’s C&T. We hope this edition provides inspiration and closes the circle for your sustainable beauty formulating challenges.
