Finnish circular economy innovations compiled in a handbook


In Finland, cities, municipalities and regions act as innovation platforms. There is a culture of collaboration between the different levels of governance, and between the private and third sector, which are success factors in systemic change. The national Green Deal process is aligning the objectives and steering action towards common goals.

In this handbook, produced by Helsinki-Uusimaa Circular Valley, we have gathered best practices in circular economy in Finland to share with the rest of the world. The featured case articles serve as exemplary models of circular economy, with a particular focus on regional collaboration and public-private partnerships. These initiatives encompass implemented pilots, regional business collaborations, or other forms of innovative activities. The articles concentrate on themes related to construction, textiles, and industrial symbiosis.
