The Alliance for Circular Economy Solutions (ACES) is a progressive new collaboration of businesses and think tanks committed to ambitious circular economy policy in Europe. It combines business voices with economic and social analysis on the impact of the circular economy. ACES is led by an influential group of British, Belgian, Dutch and German organisations and is working to secure a European circular economy package that generates new jobs and revenues whilst driving product innovation, secondary raw material use and new business models.
To mark the launch of this collaboration, ACES member Green Alliance published an initial analysis, Unemployment and the circular economy, which shows how the development of the circular economy in Europe could impact the jobs market in Italy, Poland and Germany.
