Glasgow seeks businesses to go circular

Businesses in Glasgow are being encouraged to unlock new opportunities by getting involved in a pioneering city-wide venture.

Circular Glasgow is seeking fifty Glasgow-based businesses to help ‘make things last’ by collaborating to keep products and materials in high-value use for longer.

Hosted by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, and supported by Zero Waste Scotland through a programme backed by the European Regional Development Fund, Circular Glasgow will connect with companies across the city – helping them open up new revenue streams, increase competitive advantage and realise financial savings.

A collaboration, already set up as part of the campaign, resulted in the first ever Scottish beer to be made from leftover bread, using Auld’s unsold morning rolls to create Jaw Brew’s Hardtack beer.

Businesses interested in finding out more are invited to attend a Circular Glasgow information event on Wednesday December 6 to learn how they could benefit directly. Registration is via the Circular Glasgow website.

Circular Glasgow complements Zero Waste Scotland’s nationwide support for SMEs to develop circular economy business ideas, including its £18million Circular Economy Investment Fund and Circular Economy Business Support Service. Both are supported by the European Regional Development Fund through the £73million Resource Efficiency Circular Economy Accelerator Programme.
