An exhibition set up in Parliament by WRAP shows how many jobs could be created in each UK constituency by the circular economy.
As part of the exhibition, it has also launched a new interactive tool created through Google, that enables individuals to look at each constituency and understand the scope of circular economy employment potential.
The report, Employment and the Circular Economy – Job creation in a more resource efficient Britain by WRAP and Green Alliance, estimated that over 210,000 new jobs could be needed across the UK. That figure could rise to half a million if the circular economy agenda was to receive significant development.
WRAP chief executive Liz Goodwin said: “WRAP has shown the jobs potential for the Continent, country and capital. But now we’re drilling right down to the constituencies – delivering indicative figures for MPs and their constituencies.
“Boosting the economy, providing jobs and protecting the environment are key issues for any government. However, the circular economy could offer real benefits in all three areas, and promises to turn these issues into opportunities.”
