Circular Jobs Bulletin 2021

May 9, 2022
Jobs & Skills

Circle Economy's Circular Jobs Monitor gathers and displays the number and range of jobs that are part of the circular economy. 

This bulletin provides a snapshot of data that was added to the Circular Jobs Monitor and other updates that have taken place over the past year. The Circular Jobs Monitor now hosts data for over 150 cities from over 30 countries around the world made possible through our partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). 

For each territory on the monitor, you can explore the number and percentage of circular jobs. This total is also broken down by sector, circular economy strategies and across three types of circular jobs: core, enabling and indirectly circular jobs. 

The Circular Jobs Monitor provides policymakers, economists, and labour organisations with insights into the relationship between the circular economy and the labour market. These insights can facilitate the design of evidence-based strategies for promoting the circular economy, required education pathways, and a benchmark of current circular activity against which to monitor future progress.

Would you like to help us grow and improve the Circular Jobs Monitor? We welcome input, data and feedback on the usability and content of the Circular Jobs Monitor to ensure it grows to be an even more insightful tool for stakeholders working to advance the circular economy in their locality, industry or sector.
