Abstract: An analysis of the implementation of the comprehensive circular economy concept in Slovenia is presented. The concept used takes advantage of the endogenous potential of the area in which it is implemented and is aimed at the development of the forest-wood chain in the municipality of Kočevje. The results of the current 7-year implementation of the circular economy have shown a balanced fulfilment of all three dimensions of sustainable development: sustainable management of forests and products (FSC, PEFC), financial viability of operations and increased contributions to all public treasuries - even in time of crisis, more than 50 new green workplaces, increased interest of private investors, promotion of tourism, and last but not least - positive multiplicative effects on the quality of life of the citizens of Kočevje. Cyclicality is ensured in this way and the circular economy successfully fulfils its purpose.
