A circular economy is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems.
It’s not just about waste management
A circular economy favors activities that preserve value in the form of energy, labor and materials. This means designing for long-lasting use, reuse, remanufacturing, and recycling to keep products, components, and materials circulating in the economy.
Keysight’s main contribution to a Circular Economy is assuring our solutions are designed and produced to support an extensive use phase, of up to 40 years active service; supported by our calibration, repair and remarketing services.
