All over the world, a growing number of companies have started to develop and apply circular business models. Governments have good reasons to act as well: circular economy strengthens the economy by saving on valuable resources, stimulates innovation and offers the promise of millions of new jobs. Given the importance of governmental intervention in establishing a circular economy, we have set out on a journey to identify best practices worldwide. We invite all governments to find inspiration here and add their success stories as well to help promote the transition towards circularity.

In our publication Governments going Circular - Global Scan Best Practices we comment on the best practices found and provide ideas for circular transition. You can download the publication here.
