Circular Economy and Territorial Consequences -the cases of Switzerland and Liechtenstein

One more spin-off report of our Circular Economy and Territorial Consequences (CIRCTER) project is published today, about Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

The report seeks to provide critical insights for a transition to a circular economy tailored to these territories. For this, it provides an in-depth analysis of current territorial patterns of material, waste and socioeconomic indicators that could fuel the design of regional strategies of these areas.

The report benchmarks Switzerland regions and Liechtenstein with the broader European context, identifying the key aspects that differentiate these territories from the rest of the European regions. It also presents the territorial implications for transitioning towards circular configurations in these territories and specific lessons and/or input towards a comprehensive circular economy strategy.

CIRCTER project produced regional estimates (at NUTS-2 level) for the main material consumption and waste generation and treatment indicators available from Eurostat. In addition, the CIRCTER project developed a sectoral perspective of the circular economy. This differentiates between the demand-side and supply-side of circular products and/or services.
