Report – Circular cities in action: Driving progress through policy

Cities are the engine room of the circular economy, where government, business and citizens co-exist at a scale to enable powerful collaboration and partnerships. Each of those stakeholders must play their part in making circular economy a reality, with governments providing an environment in which businesses are able and incentivised to innovate and provide genuinely sustainable products and services to large numbers of consumers.

This report presents the results of research carried out by ReLondon, between October 2020 and April 2021, into current circular economy policy being applied in London as well as good practice from other global cities. It provides examples to inform and inspire future circular economy policies by cities both within the UK and around the world.
