Circular Bern

Bern has kickstarted its transition towards a circular economy, together with Circle Economy and ecos. As part of the Circular Cities Switzerland project, city officials and local urban changemakers have undertaken a Circle City Scan; a collaborative innovation process to identify practical strategies that are best positioned to support the circular economy. 

The projects have worked towards systematically preparing the ground for Bern to implement compelling and viable circular economy projects, such as a circular shopping centre to promoting circular lifestyles, adopting circular (as-a-service) business models for furniture in municipal office, as well as developing a digital marketplace for secondary construction materials to boost local value creation through material cycling.
