A circular economy road map has been devised for Rovaniemi with a whole host of measures and objectives for developing the circular economy.
Napapiirin Residuum Oy (waste management), Napapiirin Energia ja Vesi Oy (utility company) and the City of Rovaniemi promote the local circular economy using the Arctic Circle Circular Economy Park project.
The circular economy road map specifies the goals of circular economy for the locality and concrete measures for attaining these goals. Municipalities invest in, among others, resource efficiency for construction, waste management advice and a reduction in food waste. At best, this work creates new circular economy business opportunities and builds new types of partnerships with a variety of actors as well as boosting the social wellbeing of municipal residents, for instance with the increase in sharing economy possibilities.
