Circular Jobs in Finland
Modelling employment impacts resulting from circular economy interventions
Overall, positive employment impacts are forecast for the consumer electronics and forestry sectors, mainly emerging from the high labour intensity of collection, recycling and refurbishing activities. Buildings show net employment creation in the short term, and declines in the medium and longer terms. Negative employment impacts are forecast for all other sectors, largely due to the high contribution of upstream activities to total employment, in the form of primary production of materials (e.g., food, metal ores, textiles), and a reduction of retail jobs resulting from a higher lifetime of products.
