A circular economy is an industrial system that is restorative or regenerative by intention and design. It replaces the ‘end-of-life’ concept with restoration while shifting towards maximizing the use of resources and renewable energy, minimizing GHG emissions, eliminating the use of toxic chemicals which impair reuse, and aiming for the elimination of waste through the superior design of materials, products and systems. Today, sustainable practices are in the DNA of innumerable hospitality businesses, and it will be no less in use at USEE.
Circular Economy in Our Work
The concept of the circular economy tallies completely with our philosophy at USEE and is integral to our work. We rethink how we use natural resources, goods and services sustainably and align our work with the triple bottom line: environmental sustainability, economic feasibility and social equity. For our project work, we design and recommend systems that encourage resource efficiencies, use of renewables, recycling, reuse, and recovery, while systematically designing out material leakage and disposal.
