Abstract [en]

The Nordic Waste Prevention Group under the Nordic Council of Ministers initiated this project "Moving towards a circular economy – successful Nordic business models". The overall objective is to make the circular economy thinking more mainstream in the Nordic countries and hereby accelerate the development of circular economy in the Nordic region.

The project consisted of two activities:

- The organisation of a large multi-stakeholder workshop with participation of more than 60 actors relevant for the circular economy, which was held in in Copenhagen in April 2015.

- The release of a report including a case-catalogue with 18 examples of Nordic businesses, which are part of the Nordic circular economy as well as short policy recommendations, which were suggested at the workshop.

In this report, these 18 cases as well as the workshop and its recommendations are presented.
