The Economics of the Circular Economy Transition
Chile has progressed in several areas in recent years to advance towards a circular economy. An Extended Producer Responsibility Law was approved in 2016. A law that prohibits plastic bags was approved in 2018. And a law that regulates single-use plastics was approved in 2021. In addition to these laws, the country has recently published two crucial strategic planning documents: the National Strategy for Organic Waste and the Roadmap for a Circular Chile by 2040. These and other initiatives have set the stage for rapid progress towards a circular economy, progress that can significantly benefit from exchanges with organisations that can provide international experience, such as the OECD.
This event investigates the following questions:
- How will socioeconomic trends affect materials use and the challenge to transition to a resource-efficient, circular economy?
- How can the circular economy transition be designed to have double dividends for the economy and the environment?
- How can the extractive industry adapt to a global circular economy transition?
