The City of Helsinki’s Roadmap for Circular and Sharing Economy was approved in May 2020. The roadmap sets up goals for circularity in four central focus areas, and includes 31 concrete actions
- Construction - the whole chain from land use planning through construction to demolition is taken into account. By piloting different circular criteria in construction projects the city aims to find functional solutions that can be put to use.
- Procurement - the City strives to minimise the use of single use products, and investigate the product as a service model for essential product groups.
- Green waste- the City is moving towards a closed-loop system by trying out new ways of processing and utilising different material streams
- The sharing economy and new business opportunities - the City is lloking to make more efficient use of vacant and underused spaces, and allow these to be used by citizens for working, meetings and hobbies
