Abstract

The anthropogenic activities developed in the manufacturing and distribution of products that are carried out at greater intensity to meet the growing demand and consumption worldwide produce a more significant amount of greenhouse gases (GHG), which impacts global warming. In the same way, the problem of the scarcity of natural resources, increasingly growing, creates the need to seek better alternatives with a sustainable approach to protect the state of the planet in which we live. For this, the support of governments, companies, and even consumers is required. This chapter takes the perspective of the circular economy (CE) as an opportunity to implement sustainable methods based on the management and reduction of waste, giving them a new function. Adding the use of the carbon footprint (CF) as a tool that allows knowing the impact of anthropogenic activities on the environment is added. In addition, confirmed cases aim to reduce GHG emissions by implementing a more efficient system that originates based on the CE principles.
