The Right Policies for a Circular Economy
Philadelphia needs an advocate for policies, laws and regulations that make a circular economy possible.
Right now, there are far too many policies, laws and regulations that either make it impossible to take circular actions or negatively affect a circular enterprise’s competitiveness. Whether it’s health code, building code, tax incentives or making producers pay the true environmental cost of their products, Circular Philadelphia works with lawmakers and regulators in transparent and ethical ways to change these policies and scale circular practices. We do not lobby for an individual enterprise’s interests. Instead, we advocate for collective action to level the playing field for circular enterprises.
We work with Philadelphia and Pennsylvania lawmakers to identify key legislation that needs to be created or amended to allow for circular principles to be enacted.
We work with Philadelphia and Pennsylvania regulators to ensure that circular enterprises can legally and fairly operate while also complying with our city and state regulations.
We work with enterprises, both corporations and small businesses, to assess their internal policies and ensure that every one of their employees is empowered to innovate toward greater circularity.
