In the last years, new economies have emerged in Europe as an attempt to solve societal and environmental challenges that the Old Continent faces. One example is the circular economy whose large spectrum of solutions attracts both public and private sectors. This new economic model is followed in many European countries, their cities having already integrated circularity in their municipal agendas. Public institutions, SMEs, large businesses, organizations, academia and research centres are involved in the process of transition to a circular economy. The United Kingdom has shown its interest in these plans, supporting several projects in the field accross the country. This paper deals with London’s strategies to attain the objective of becoming a circular city. The measures planned by the municipality and their impact on London’s economy are explored.
