Does the project follow ecology and circular economy principles?
Nature creates no waste. In nature, the outputs or waste of one organism become the inputs for another. Can we consider the entire life cycle of our digital products or services to identify areas to not only reduce waste but also to regenerate systems? How can we perpetually create more value in our digital products and services than the resources we use in their creation?
