Circular Economy Local Resolution and Resources



Climate Equity Policy Center




This model resolution from the Climate Equity Policy Center, along with the accompanying memo and factsheets, is designed to help local governments, advocates, and community members use policy to begin the transition to a circular economy that bolsters resiliency and promotes equity. This resource details how a circular economy reduces carbon emissions, waste, pollution, and resource use , and further how they can support environmental justice by reducing toxins and contaminants, particularly when policies prioritize reducing pollution in over-burdened communities. This is a foundational resource for municipalities interested in advancing policies to promote equitable climate solutions.
