The circular economy : a priority for Orange

In the run-up to the COP 22 UN Climate Conference in Marrakech, from 7 to 18 November, Orange is organising a dialogue with stakeholders on the circular economy. Last year at COP 21, Orange made this concept a priority, pledging to include it in company practices by 2020. The idea is to break away from the linear scheme of “producing – consuming – throwing out”.
