Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 30 August 2017

The Scottish Government has not carried out any analysis on (a) impact on unemployment rates among different sectors of increased numbers of circular economy jobs or (b) for circular economy jobs to mitigate unemployment in occupations considered vulnerable to job losses. Our priority is to work in partnership to maximise the economic and other opportunities for Scotland.
