Real circularity is an approach forward-looking companies and people take to design in which raw materials, components, and finished products lose as little of their value as they are used and, eventually, recycled and reused. From aluminum cans, to airplanes, to health, and housing, industry is relooking at how to close the loop and ensure products and services minimize impacts to the environment, maximize social value, and are measured and stewarded in a holistic way through governance.
Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) is a fast increasing requirement from retail consumers, hotel guests, employees, investors, governments, and stakeholders of every level.
Groups like the International Sustainability Standards Board and Real Circularly Coalition help provide frameworks and playbooks for organizations to move from outdated linear thinking to circular thinking.
At beWater™ we align our real circularity goals with our strategic partner, Ball Corporation, to ensure every product we develop is a circular as possible, often in challenging situations - nothing is every perfect, but we're making important strides, like establishing nationwide collection and recycling infrastructures with free and easy booking online to ensure all of our products can be recycled and reused.
Real circularity means taking a total life cycle view of products and working closely with industry, government, NGO partners, B2B and B2C customer partners, and even competitors to become force amplifiers to advance the circular economy.
Independently accredited partners, like Ball Corporation, Sherwin-Williams, Vietnam's Ministry Of Natural Resources & Environment (MONRE), the Vietnam Eco-Friendly Products Manufacturer Association (EPMA) are taking the lead in implementing meaning policies and procedures that are already yielding real results.
