Circular Economy

Circular Economy dictates activities that preserve value in the form of energy, labor, and materials. This means designing for high performance, durability, reuse, remanufacturing, and recycling to keep products, components, and materials circulating in the economy. EMC’s unique business model provides a solid foundation for designing to a Circular Economy model during company development.

While further quantifying is needed, EMC operations will take place mostly within Planetary Boundaries framework. The model was developed by the  Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Australian National University to identify the nine processes that regulate the stability and resilience of the Earth system. The scientists proposed quantitative planetary boundaries within which humanity can continue to develop and thrive for generations to come. Crossing these boundaries increases the risk of generating large-scale abrupt or irreversible environmental changes. The Planetary Boundaries frame is used widely as a precondition for sustainable development such as the United Nations Sustainable Development goals.
