Employment and the circular economy: job creation in a more resource efficient Britain

This research by economists at Green Alliance and WRAP demonstrates that, if Britain continues to develop its resource efficiency, the country's circular economy sector will create net jobs in regions where unemployment is higher, such as the North East and West Midlands, and among low to mid skilled occupations, where a higher rate of job losses are projected for the future.
