Prerequisites for an increased holistic and material perspective in circular economy

The purpose of the project is to study and identify conditions and different possible ways from a government perspective move from a waste perspective to a holistic and material perspective. This is based on a consensus in society, companies and among researchers that a holistic and material perspective can create greater opportunities to build functioning circular systems that contribute to sustainability (economically, environmentally and socially) than what a focus on waste and recycling can do within the circular economy, which has dominated the work so far.
