Just published: "Policy levers for a low-carbon circular economy"
There is much talk about circular economy, but how far has its mitigation effect reached the circle of climate policies? With this publication, Circle Economy advocates for a deeper and stronger integration between circular economy and addressing climate change.
The report explores policy levers to accelerate the transition to the circular economy, and provides policy recommendations to create a tipping point whereby a transition to a low-carbon circular economy is not just necessary but also inevitable.
It is based on legal policy mapping and stakeholder consultation, providing a broad European perspective combined with insights into a selection of member states, and focusing on two value chains (housing and mobility) and four material streams (aluminium, concrete, plastic and steel).
