Leading thinking on the circular economy
Green Alliance leads thinking on effective policy making for a more resource resilient circular economy through the Circular Economy Task Force.

Our advocacy to improve the consistency of waste collection systems across the UK stimulated a review published in September 2016 by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Our work in 2014-15 also encouraged the government to support the EU’s circular economy action plan, a package of policies intended to improve resource productivity across Europe. Some of the recommendations of the Task Force were also picked up by the UK’s Environmental Audit Committee’s Growing a circular economy report, and by the Scottish Government’s Resource Use and the Circular Economy inquiry in 2014.
