A circular business is designed to eliminate waste and keep materials in use for as long as possible. This is in contrast to the traditional linear business model, which takes raw materials, makes products, and then disposes of those products when they are no longer needed.

Circular businesses use a variety of strategies to achieve this goal, including:
- Design for durability & reusability
- Repair & refurbishment
- Remanufacturing
- Recycling
