Employment and the circular economy

Job creation in a resource efficient economy
Employment and the circular economy
Research by economists at Green Alliance and WRAP has demonstrated that if Britain continues to develop its circular economy sector, it will help to solve some underlying issues in the labour market, creating net jobs in regions where unemployment is high, such as the North East and West Midlands, and among low- to mid-skilled occupations, where a higher rate of job losses are projected.

Using the same methodology, we have also quantified the job impacts of circular economy development on the very different labour markets of Germany, Poland and Italy. Read our briefing, Job quality in a circular economy, to find out more about how job satisfaction can be achieved in a circular economy.

Our report, Unemployment and the circular economy in Europewas cited in a briefing to the European Parliament on the new circular economy package.
