AmCham | Circular economy for a sustainable future

Your substances


In Europe, the circular economy promises to maintain the value of products, materials and resources for as long as possible, while protecting human health and the environment. In 2016, circular activities in the EU generated almost €147 billion in value added with €17.5 billion worth of investments.

Business involvement is key to the success and implementation of the circular economy in Europe. Already today, the private sector has demonstrated leadership in the development of more sustainable practices. This brochure outlines a series of ‘circular’ solutions from across member companies of the American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union (AmCham EU). The examples feature different dimensions of circularity:

(*) products that make use of recycled or secondary resources;

(*) processes that enable the recycling of products or materials; and

(*) services that contribute to attaining the circular economy in Europe and globally.
