The circular economy is a new approach to the responsible and cyclical use of natural resources, where the economy should aim at minimizing the impact on the environment and stimulating the economy. Solving environmental issues in tandem with promoting sustainable growth has never been more current than it is today. One of the essential stages of the transition to a circular economy is the improvement of waste management, which is primarily due to limited global natural resources and the need to reduce their consumption. The Republic of Moldova, similar to other countries in the world, annually it produces huge amounts of waste, a significant share of which goes to companies and enterprises. In order to hold economic agents accountable in recent years, certain steps have been taken by public authorities, but they have remained without visible impact on the situation in the field. Because the adaptation of such a circular economy model is done at different levels, including at the level of individual, whether owner or employee of a company, we decided to conduct their survey in order to determine awareness of the principles of the circular economy of those who are involved in the real sector of the country`s economy. The results of the interview clearly showed that the greatest efforts in the field of raising awareness, empowering companies are yet to be undertaken, and the transition to a circular economy in the Republic of Moldova will take some time.
