  20. 20. In a circular economy, products are designed in such a way that at the end of their life their value can still be captured. Keeping products in closed loops allows materials to be mainted.
  21. 21. On the city level, creating closed loops is more complex but has the potential to save large amounts of CO2
  22. 22. Circularity in a city Resources are sourced locally, if possible, used only if truly needed, and their value is maintained as part of a continuous loop ー within the limits of our planet. Waste and pollution are non-existent. People’s lives and jobs positively affect their neighbourhoods and communities.
