This Policy Brief presents the key results of the EU-funded CIRCULAR IMPACTS project. The circular economy holds the promise of providing macroeconomic benefits, but we first need to acquire a deeper understanding of its potential economic, environmental and social impacts. This paper presents two main options for measuring these impacts as well as some quantitative and qualitative results of the project. The paper concludes with key messages for policy-makers.
