Abstract
Preface: SOME PEOPLE work with the Circular Economy every day …. But many of us have lots to questions!

A simple question that we often hear is WHAT is the Circular Economy?

We also consider other questions to be important … we shall be addressing many throughout this compendium ….. just as we do throughout the Massive Open Online Course: Circular Economy: Sustainable Materials Management.

You can access the course at www.coursera.org/learn/circular-economy. This compendium directly supports that course.

As a starting point, consider the following related to the ‘what’ question above.

Preface: SOME PEOPLE work with the Circular Economy every day …. But many of us have lots to questions!

A simple question that we often hear is WHAT is the Circular Economy?

We also consider other questions to be important … we shall be addressing many throughout this compendium ….. just as we do throughout the Massive Open Online Course: Circular Economy: Sustainable Materials Management.

You can access the course at www.coursera.org/learn/circular-economy. This compendium directly supports that course.

As a starting point, consider the following related to the ‘what’ question above.
• Have you ever wondered why so many people believe the Circular Economy is important?
• How is it linked to the function of natural resource production systems?
• Why is the Circular Economy so important for developing countries?
• How will it benefit society?
Other questions we think are important are related to HOW do we go about it?
• How can business, industry and society move the Circular Economy forward?
• What are the technologies involved?
• What issues and incentives motivate businesses?
• How do companies make money in the Circular Economy?
• Can policy and politicians help the Circular Economy?
• Does society have to change?

Please read on to find out more!

We have structured this compendium to closely follow the MOOC, and intend that this will serve as anaid to your understanding of the course and as a ‘ready reference’ source describing many aspects of the Circular Economy and sustainable management of materials. (Less)
