This working paper outlines how a circular economy (CE) can help avert the climate crisis. It outlines nine calls-to-action to take to maximise CE benefits in order to help limit warming to 1.5 ̊C and avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
Shift consumption patterns
Stimulate product circularity from the design phase
Incorporate circularity across clean energy value chains
Integrate CE strategies into national climate policies and plans
Incentivise cross-border greenhouse gas emission reductions
Connect CE metrics with climate change impacts
Increase transparency and comparability in modelling methodologies
Apply systemic and context-specific impact assessment to inform decision-making
Investigate the role of CE in climate change adaptation.
The report Avoiding Blind Spots: Promoting Circular & Fair Business Models by Circle Economy, European Environmental Bureau (EEB) and The Fair Trade Advocacy Office (FTAO) provides an overview of the blindspots - the unintended, unaddressed or underexplored negative impacts - of promoting circular business models.
The aim is to get a holistic understanding of the impacts of circular business models, specifically taking into account the social sphere.
The report considers three circular business models (repair, resale and product as a service - PaaS) and four types of blindspots (governance, market, social and environmental).
Recommendations for (EU) policy makers, public procurers and businesses are then formulated to address these blindspots.
This book provides answers on how to govern the transition to a circular economy in different socio-cultural and political contexts.
It is intended to help the global changemakers who are building our circular future. Author Jacqueline Cramer spoke with 20 representatives of circular hotspots worldwide, thoroughly analysed their different contexts and extracted 10 key takeaways. Everyone working on circular initiatives can use these and adapt them to their own socio-cultural and political contexts.
The Circular Navarre Catalogue 2021 is an update of the first showcasing booklet published in 2020. This new edition includes 30 organisations - based on circular business models - in the Spanish Navarre region, looking for international cooperation.
