Austria on the path to a sustainable and circular society - The Austrian Circular Economy Strategy

The Austrian Circular Economy Strategy

The Austrian circular economy strategy was developed and led by the Federal Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology, together with many economic, scientific, administrative and civil society actors.

The transformation into a circular economy entails factoring resource flows into production, sales and consumption processes and thus massively reducing the use of materials (raw or otherwise), as well as the volume of waste and the strain on the environment.

Austria's circular economy strategy therefore aims to:

  • Spare resources
  • Achieve zero waste
  • Achieve zero pollution
  • Protect the environment.
