The world’s first road map to a circular economy has been published. “Leading the cycle – Finnish road map to a circular economy 2016-2025” outlines the steps to sustainable success.
Finland has a real opportunity to create sustainable well-being and a successful carbon-neutral circular economy over the next 5 to 10 years. The world needs pioneering solutions to ensure that economic growth and increased well-being are no longer based on the wasteful use of natural resources. A circular economy maximises the use of materials and retains their value in the loop for as long as possible: rather than offering products, the foundation for earnings will be services and intelligence-based digital solutions.
The road map provides Finland with new ways to increase the creation of added value.
What new solutions will Finland offer a world challenged by climate change, dwindling natural resources and urbanisation? Read a news item about publication of the road map here. Download the full report here.
