About Cape Town

The City of Cape Town has committed to undertaking a Circular Economy Action Plan. As one of Africa’s leading local governments that has embraced circular economy practices, the City has undertaken multiple initiatives to support Circular Economy practices. Cape Town currently has two projects underway in partnership with GreenCape. Through collaboration with GreenCape, the City has undertaken the development and implementation of a circular economy roadmap. Using evidence-based approaches the team will explore how the circular economy agenda can be achieved in the City by investigating the economic, enterprise development and investment potential available. In addition, the City has also undertaken a solid waste management project aimed at accelerating waste avoidance. Through this project the city will explore approaches to waste reduction, minimisation and prevention.
