BSW Technical Note
The BSW discussed at its Meeting in Helsinki on 7 June 2017 the relationship between the Circular Economy and the Bioeconomy. Starting point of these deliberations was the visit to the 1st World Circular Economy Forum held in Helsinki on June 5 and 6.
The Technical Note "SYNERGY AND ADDED VALUE OF BIOECONOMY AND CIRCULAR ECONOMY" details the views of the members of the BSW. It highlights the synergies between these two policy initiatives, explores their unique features and argues for better definitions, stronger policy interactions and joint developments.
