Cities only occupy 3% of the Earth’s land—but they consume about 70% of global resources and energy. The linear 'take-make-waste' model needs to change in cities, and fast.
But how can cities leave linear behind and become more circular?
The European Investment Bank and Circle Economy have given this a lot of thought. The 15 steps for circular cities document provides comprehensive guidelines to make any city circular. This guide is the first of four documents prepared for EIB’s new Circular City Centre (C3), a competence and resource centre that aims to support EU cities in their circular economy transition.
