From waste to resource: Opportunities and limits of circular economy

March 14, 2022 15 min

What is the circular economy and what is its potential for a sustainable future? When we talk about recycling, are we talking about the circular economy or are we just skimming the tip of an iceberg that still needs a lot of work and structured interventions to emerge as a real opportunity?

These and other questions by Ludovica Ferrari are answered by Eleonora Foschi and Sara Zanni, Assistant Professor at the BBS Centre for Sustainability and Climate Change.
