Scope:

The transition to a more circular economy is underway. But what can be done to speed it up? This report, authored by Institut Montaigne, recommends five principles that must drive circular economy policy:

  • focus on innovation
  • adopt a comprehensive, global approach
  • take into account differences between sectors and enhance public / private cooperation
  • measure progress
  • reach out beyond developed countries.
