Circular Economy Implementation Programme 2021-2023

This update gives an overview of circular economy developments and new activities that are being launched, and reports on the progress of activities that were already under way as part of the Circular Economy Implementation Programme. Under this programme efforts are being made through five transitional agendas, ten crosscutting themes and at regional level, with projects that yield valuable experience and lessons for central government policy and with the best combination of instruments.

The Circular Economy Implementation Programme is updated annually. This edition focuses on three themes:

  1. Higher on the R ladder (circularity ladder) and further towards the front end of the chain and the product
  2. Systemic change from a linear to a circular economy
  3. Impact through a focus on raw materials flows
