Status report on the circular economy in Germany

The circular economy is increasingly developing into an important branch of industry in Germany. Both turnover and the number of employees in the industry continue to grow significantly. This is shown in the „Status Report on the Circular Economy in Germany 2020“ presented a few weeks ago. 15 associations, organisations and companies, including PlasticsEurope Deutschland, BDE and bvse, were involved in preparing the report, which provides information on the current status across all materials and waste fractions.

Important topics include the high potential of the circular economy in terms of resource conservation, climate protection and energy turnaround as well as for economic efficiency and innovative strength.

The complete report as well as the most important key points can be downloaded from the specially created website at https://statusbericht-kreislaufwirtschaft.de/.
