Unemployment and the circular economy in Europe: a study of opportunities in Italy, Poland and Germany


This analysis shows how development of the circular economy in Europe could impact the jobs market in Italy, Poland and Germany.

We found that, if ambitious, the measures could cut unemployment and save €3 billion a year. In these three economies alone, development of the circular economy at scale would help to tackle difficult regional and occupational unemployment issues and bring 270,000 people back into work. 

This report marks the launch of the Alliance for Circular Economy Solutions (ACES), our new partnership with a group of influential business and European organisations.

The report is also available in Polish and Italian.
