The circular economy and inclusive employment: modelling key sectors and products


This event will present the results from a study carried out by Sitra and IISD to attempt to estimate the impacts that the adoption of a circular economy would have on employment in Finland, with broader lessons for the EU and other countries also looking to adopt circular economy approaches but who are also interested in job growth potential and concerns about job shifts within the economy. The overall objective is to provide a range of estimates of the dynamic net job effects of the circular economy, as well as key effects outside of Finland, focusing primarily on related net job effects among other European partners.
