Most of the blue development activities are located in the north of Poland, by the sea. There is also smart specialization dedicated to Blue Growth in Pomorskie. Poland has no national strategy for the bioeconomy in general, while there are policy initiatives are dedicated to the bioeconomy. There is no national definition of the term bioeconomy. Poland participates in the BioEAST - Central and Eastern European initiative for knowledge-based agriculture, aquaculture and forestry in the bioeconomy, a macro-regional initiative developed by Central and Eastern European countries. Poland also has a programme in the form of a roadmap that supports the implementation of the circular economy. Currently, a draft of the programme is available. The Roadmap ‘Transformation towards a circular economy’ sets the direction for the transformation of the Polish economy from a linear to a circular model. The currently available draft has identified four Polish priorities.


Key priorities for building a circular economy in Poland:

  • Innovation, strengthening cooperation between the industry and the science sector, and, as a result, implementing innovative solutions in the economy
  • Creating a European market for secondary raw materials, where their flow would be facilitated
  • Ensuring high quality of secondary raw materials, resulting from sustainable production and consumption
  • Service sector development

In order to implement the mentioned priorities in the roadmap project, actions in the following areas have been distinguished:

  • Sustainable industrial production
  • Sustainable consumption
  • Bioeconomy
  • New business models
