This study calculates the employment effects of the Amsterdam Circular Strategy 2020–2025 and the Waste and Raw Materials Implementation Program 2020–2025 for three value chains: food and organic residual flows, consumer Goods, and the built environment. These value chains have been identified in previous analyses as essential to Amsterdam's circular transition. By calculating employment effects, we hope to motivate companies and governments to employ circular strategies. By anticipating changes in the labour market, the City of Amsterdam can seize the opportunities offered by circularity—something it’s well poised to do, as Amsterdam’s workforce already posseses some of the skills necessary for circular jobs.
