Governments Go Circular
Governments: key in the transition to a circular economy (2015)
Governments are key stakeholders in the transition to a circular economy. In building more conducive environments for a circular economy they can: introduce or tighten laws & regulations; take financial measures (like offering subsidies and taking fiscal measures); utilize procurement power; and develop symbiotic partnerships.
To inspire governments, De Groene Zaak set out on a journey to identify best practices worldwide. As far as we know, this is the first survey of governmental best practices accelerating the circular economy. Together with our partners: Accenture, EY, IMSA, Royal HaskoningDHV, and their global networks, we have identified case studies that are collected on the govsgocircular website. We invite governments to find inspiration and add their success stories as well to help promote the transition towards circularity.
In February 2015 we not only launched this website but also our publication Governments going Circular – Global Scan Best Practices. You can download the publication here.
