Levelling up through circular economy jobs
The UK government has an opportunity to deliver on its promise to level up the country with jobs in remanufacture, repair, recycling and reuse.
With an ambitious approach to the circular economy, the government can end needless waste and create up to 450,000 jobs in the circular economy across regions of the UK that needs jobs the most.
However, if the government continues 'business as usual', jobs created will be concentrated in London and the south east, rather than stretched across the north, the midlands and Wales where unemployment is higher.
