Circular cities barometer
Cities leading the circular economy
Cities are at the forefront of the shift to a circular economy. With an estimated two billion new urban residents by 2050, our cities need to become more circular to secure a sustainable future.
We created the Circular Cities Barometer with Bloomberg Media Studios to identify the world’s top cities at the forefront of circular living. This digital dashboard shows how the top 25 cities are transitioning from a linear “take, make, waste” economy to a circular “reduce, reuse, recycle” model.
What makes a city circular?
Holcim and Bloomberg created the Circular Cities Barometer to measure how fast 25 cities around the world are leading the shift to the circular economy. We rated cities based on a dozen circularity indicators. The results provide valuable insights into measures cities can take to be more circular.
