Tools and insights for policymakers

Governments' role is crucial for promoting and developing a global implementation of the circular economy.

By setting legislative agendas and developing strategic programs and public services, the government can drive the demand for the development of circular practices and influence the way businesses operate. This is crucial for a transformative change from today's linear economy to a circular one.


Government authorities not only play a crucial role in setting new standards for businesses but also for various stakeholders that help businesses prosper, such as consumers, retailers, suppliers, and manufacturers.
