Environmental Engineering, Vol.2 No.1 June 2015. -

Current economic growth and the presently deployed technology result in high entropic cost for the planet. Resource

efficiency considers using the Earth’s limited resources in a sustainable manner while minimising impacts on the environment. Paper

presents the concepts of entropy and circular economy, and elaborates on waste, energy-nutrients and water nexus. Integrating the

energy, water and waste sectors is indispensable for achieving resource efficiency. The Republic of Croatia should endeavour to benefit

from this strategy to conserve its ecosystems and natural capital. Moreover, resource efficiency achievement can generate substantial

benefits which include reduced landfill and carbon emissions, higher rates of re-use and recycling of products and greater job creation.
