DUBAI – The United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) Circular Economy Council has approved 22 proposed policies designed to accelerate a shift from linear business models in manufacturing, food, infrastructure and transport.

The council – which hosted government and private sector officials, including Minister of Climate Change and the Environment, Mohammed Almheiri, to announce the news – is to explore various opportunities, including the potential for upcycling textile waste into new products and AI-enabled waste management solutions.

“Our current linear economy consumes valuable materials and resources without being able to benefit from them after use, which represents waste in the modern concept of sustainability. Our approach seeks to protect our environment and to ensure the long-term economic and social prosperity of our country,” Almheiri told local news agency, WAM.
