The circular economy is a potential new sustainability paradigm; it is a policy approach and business strategy that ultimately aims to promote sustainable consumption and production, and improve resource productivity while reducing environmental impacts (Schröder, Anantharaman, Anggraeni, & Foxon, 2019). Circular economies have systems in place that allow them to achieve a more sustainable economy, including principles and operational visions for the city. The principles and systems put in place focus on changing a city’s linear model into a regenerative and restorative model fuelled by design. The linear model is most easily understood as a global economic system that is based on the linear “take-make-dispose” model, which is hugely wasteful (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2015). Some aspects of circular models are achieved by redirecting energy and material flows to be circular rather than linear; using waste to produce inputs, and reducing pollution and greenhouse gasses.
