Circular Economy Promotion Law of the People’s Republic of China

China’s Circular Economy Promotion Law was enacted with the purpose of creating a circular economy where resources are used more efficiently, the environment is better protected, and sustainable development is realized. The law applies the 3R hierarchy (reduce, reuse, recycle) in production and consumption cycles. It also gives priority to the reduction of resource consumption as long as it is good for saving resources, is technically feasible, and economically rational.
