Circularity presents significant opportunities for local labour markets. If embraced with the right mindset, it can promote decent work and create new, more diverse skill sets and job roles.
In the past few months, Tevi and Circle Economy collaborated to increase local awareness of the circular economy in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly in the UK.
As part of this collaboration, Circle Economy assessed the number of jobs related to the circular economy using our Circular Jobs Monitor, ran a three-week circularity in-depth course for SMEs, and set up the Circle Assessment Tool that enables businesses to understand and identify which circular opportunities are relevant to them.
Launching today, our baseline analysis report finds that 8.5% of all jobs in the region are already circular. It also recommends concrete steps for policymakers to take in order to realise the opportunities of the circular economy.

The data from the report is now also available on the Circular Jobs Monitor: an online monitor that displays the amount and type of jobs that are part of the circular economy, with data already available for the Netherlands and Belgium.
