In response to the resource constraints, environmental pressures and economic barriers that characterize our “take and dispose” economy, many have put forward a vision for a “circular economy” that would not only conserve and recycle materials, but also contribute to new technological, financial and environmental innovations.
As the circular economy approach gains traction – with noteworthy advances in the EU, China and the US – it is becoming increasingly clear that adjustments to our system of regulatory and commercial law will be needed to further progress towards a circular economy. The circular economy is a serious approach to supplant the way global production and energy systems operate. For many of our clients, this represents a new and important thought construct that will lead to legal frameworks better adapted to the 21st century.
We are experts in the specific regulatory, procurement, financial structuring and other legal initiatives that are emerging to help actualize the circular economy objectives globally. We have the knowledge and ability to integrate the multiple legal disciplines comprising the whole complex of laws related to the circular economy.
