Circular consumption

Aggiornato il: 19/04/2021

In a circular city, citizens are highly aware of the issues of sustainability, circularity, short supply chains and the active role of the individual, and consequently change their consumption patterns and lifestyles. This attitude pushes companies to change processes and administrations to define more sustainable policies.

Cities are able to help, motivate or push their citizens to change their habits and behaviours towards more sustainable consumption.
