Circularity

Circularity

HMG aspires to move beyond the “linear Economy,” where resources are simply extracted, produced, consumed, and discarded, towards a ‘Circular Economy’ where resources are continuously circulated through regeneration and recycling. The Group will strive to enhance the efficiency of resources input throughout the product lifecycle stages of "planning-design-procurement-production-distribution" and to increase the recovery and recycling rates of products after use.
