The past decades have witnessed unprecedented growth in global consumption of raw materials, which also lead to increased environmental pressures. As a response to these challenges, countries across the world have made the transition to a circular economy one of their policy priorities.
Co-operation with the DG REFORM of the European Commission
Within the context of the OECD’s collaboration with the Directorate General for Structural Reform Support (DG REFORM) of the European Commission, the OECD is supporting a number of EU Member States in their efforts to develop national circular economy strategies, roadmaps and action plans.

The OECD has been supporting the Ministry of Environment of the Slovak Republic in laying the ground for the development of a national circular economy roadmap and implementation plan through analytical work and a stakeholder dialogue process.
Towards a circular economy strategic framework in the Czech Republic
The OECD has been supporting the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic in developing a strategic framework for the circular economy –Circular Czechia 2040.
