The transition to a circular economy in Glasgow is part of a broader journey of the city aiming to transition from being one of the greatest industrial places in the world back in the 19th century, to becoming a carbon-neutral city by 2030. The 2020 Glasgow Circular Economy Route Map seeks to enable a system where people can access local jobs and where green business practices contribute to achieving zero carbon goals. This new path, primarily driven by the collaboration between Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, Zero Waste Scotland and Glasgow City Council, can also contribute to the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, which severely affected the local economy. This report summarises the findings from a 20-month policy dialogue between the OECD, the city of Glasgow and several stakeholders, presenting the state of the art of the circular transition, the main challenges and the ways forward for the implementation of the city’s Route Map.

Cities of all sizes drive national growth and play a critical role in advancing global agendas for economic, social and environmental progress. OECD Urban Studies explore how to define cities and assess their performance on a wide range of policies that affect urban development and the wellbeing of residents, from housing, transport and land use to innovation and metropolitan governance. Urban policy reviews provide a comprehensive assessment of how systems of cities are working in a given country and put forward recommendations to improve the success of national urban policy and apply an “urban lens” to other relevant policies. Thematic reports offer cross-cutting data and policy advice on major topics in urban development such as ageing, migration, climate change, circular economy, metropolitan governance and investment in smart cities.
