What kind of jobs will a circular economy create?

On 20 January 2015, Green Alliance and WRAP's debate with a panel of leading experts, including the 'father' of the circular economy Walter R Stahel, discussed the employment benefits for Britain of a more circular economy. It launched major new research by economists at Green Alliance and WRAP.


  1. Liz Goodwin, CEO at WRAP, gave the introduction, with an overview of why the circular economy is working.
  2. Authors of the report Peter Mitchell, head of economics at WRAP, and Julian Morgan, chief economist at Green Alliance, presented their findings. They showed how development of the circular economy in Britain can help to tackle key labour market challenges, such as regional and occupational unemployment, and create net jobs for the economy.
