Multinational companies are subject to regional, national and state circular economy policies because value chains are global and interlinked. It is crucial for business to keep up with the latest development of these policies. This second edition of the Circular policy action brief supports business in its aim to stay up-to-date on regulatory and framework developments in the circular economy. The first edition covered circular economy policies for the European Union (EU), EU Member States, China and India, with a focus on resource recovery as a prominent business model. This year, the landscape overview includes additions and updates to existing circular economy policies for the EU, China and – newly – the U.S. state of California that have taken place in 2019, examining them on country, sector and business model levels.
