The circular economy is a model of production and consumption that is underpinned by a transition to renewable energy and materials. It is a resilient system that is good for business, people and the environment.

The Circular Economy and Green Jobs in the EU and Beyond examines what the circular economy means, why the transition from a linear economy to a circular one is important, and how we can achieve it.


The book offers clarification on the meaning and the implications of the circular economy across different contexts – economic, social, cultural, legal and international. In doing so, it goes beyond simply arguing in favour of a circular economy and critically assesses the political and distributional choices that are made during this transition. Particular emphasis is placed on the implications for jobs and different business models as well as on questions of equity.

Edited by Janis Brizga and Saïd El Khadraoui and with a foreword by Frans Timmermans, Vice-President of the European Commission
