Paul Reeve, Director of Business & Communications, ECA, said:
“The circular economy involves getting the best out of product and operational design, use and recovery and it involves a range of business models beyond 'buy, use and discard'. It's also something that buyers are increasingly looking for from their supply chain.”

The circular economy is an approach to environmental sustainability characterised by the creation of economic models where no negative environmental impact is generated and can be defined as a substitute to the conventional linear model – take resources, transform, consume and dispose.
ECA is the UK’s largest trade association representing electrotechnical and engineering services organisations, at regional, national and European level. ECA member-companies are rigorously assessed before membership is approved.
Member firms have a combined turnover in excess of £6 billion annually. Member firms carry out
design, installation, inspection, testing, maintenance and monitoring activity across domestic and commercial sectors. This ranges from power and lighting to data communications, to energy
efficiency and renewables, as well as the design and installation of cutting-edge building control technologies.
ECA’s near 3,000 members range from SME electrical businesses to nationwide engineering services organisations that employ thousands of professionals on major UK projects.
