The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has been making progress in its Circular Economies initiative, with peer organizations joining the effort and interest in collaborations building.
ASABE’s Circular Economies for Food and Agriculture Systems initiative will advance the transition of food and agricultural systems into circular systems by 2050. These efforts support the natural resources and the health of ecosystems sustainably while meeting increasing needs of the growing population around the globe.
"Identifying how to move to circular systems will be critically important for the U.S.," says ASABE executive director Darrin Drollinger, "in order to maintain its position as a global leader in food and agriculture and to have a continued impact on commerce, the environment, health, and security. Creating a societies coalition to undertake these activities that promote convergent systems for developing knowledge and technology will be key to successfully transitioning to circular systems.”
