The city study, which is only the second of its kind in the world, looks at how to make the region’s urban economy more circular and create opportunities for the business community.

Welcoming the report, Zero Waste Scotland’s Chief Executive Iain Gulland said:

“Scotland has set ambitious goals to become a more circular economy, because this approach can deliver continued economic growth whilst ensuring natural resources are managed sustainably.  It’s a key ingredient of long term business success. 

“This new partnership with Glasgow Chamber of Commerce is an important step to get businesses on board with this exciting vision, helping them take steps to become more circular – for both the benefit of the individual business and Scotland’s broader economy”.
