Circular Economy Employment Modelling

This Action aligns with the following Calls to Action from theCircular Economy Action Agenda 

  • Integrate and advance decent work in the transition to a circular economy (Textiles, CTA 9; Electronics, CTA 10)  



Circular Economy Employment Modelling is an open access model that aims to measure the employment impacts of policies and sectoral actions for the circular economy. When locally-focused data is provided as input, this model can present the outcomes of circular economy interventions in any jurisdiction. 



The dynamic simulation model developed has been calibrated to the Finnish context to produce the report Circular Jobs in Finland - Modelling employment impacts resulting from circular economy interventions, published in November 2020. This report explores the outcomes of implementing circular economy interventions for selected products in consumer electronics and appliances, textiles, food, mining and scrap metals, forestry and paper production, and buildings.
