  • Industry takes extended responsibility for all products throughout their existence, from cradle to cradle.
  • Governments, Industry, NGOs work collaboratively to create and sustain a circular system, eliminating the concept of "waste" + designing ongoing use and positive outcome for products/byproducts.
