Repensar a economia como uma economia circular

Translated title of the contribution: Rethink the economy as a circular economy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



The current model of growth based on fossil fuels, highly resource intensive and linear, which has consisted of extracting, transforming, producing, using and disposing, seems to have reached its limit. A deep transformation is urgent to decarbonize and dematerialize the economy, reduce pressure on natural resources and reduce pollution, while increasing the competitiveness of the economy and equality and social well-being. The circular economy has attracted the attention of leaders worldwide and is taking shape as a viable and practical alternative to the current linear economic model. The purpose of this article is to
present the circular economy as the paradigm of the future and that will allow to achieve a better harmony and balance between economy, environment and society.
