Model Germany Circular Economy - Policy Blueprint

In its coalition agreement, the German Federal Government has set itself the goal of developing a new integrated Circular Economy strategy. This study is the third part of a larger project of WWF Germany in the field of Circular Economy. With the participation of stakeholders from politics, business, civil society and science, a policy blueprint for a Circular Economy in Germany is being developed and publicly communicated. The study presents the key policy levers for the implementation of the Circular Economy in Germany. The effectiveness of the instruments and the costs and benefits of the instrument mix are described based on the results of the previous modelling study. In the previous work, ecological and economic impacts of previously selected Circular Economy measures and key sectors were assessed qualitatively and quantitatively with regard to resource protection, climate targets, biodiversity and several socio-economic indicators.
