The session showcases circular business models supported by the EU in partner countries through the SWITCH programmes. It highlights how SMEs develop and contribute to decent jobs while addressing environmental impacts. It focuses on priority value chains such as construction, electronics and plastics, where the SWITCH experience demonstrates the opportunities associated to circular economy practices. Participants feed into the debate their experiences on the policies, resources and investments needed to make circularity work for people, regions and cities, as envisioned under the EU Circular Economy Action Plan.
