Who we are

Zero Waste Scotland exists to create a society where resources are valued and nothing is wasted.

We’re funded to support delivery of the Scottish Government’s circular economy strategy and the EU’s Europe 2020 growth strategy. Our goal is to help Scotland reap the environmental, economic and social benefits of making best use of the world’s limited natural resources.

Our mission is to influence and enable change – from gathering evidence and informing policy, to motivating practical behaviour change in individuals and organisations through our programmes and brands. We also make direct interventions to affect change, commonly in the form of finance, business support, technical advice, training and competence development or communications support.

Underpinning this is a commitment to partnership working. We work strategically with key partners, including SEPA, the Enterprise Agencies, Scottish Futures Trust, Skills Development Scotland and others to deliver our programme of work.

Our funding comes from the Scottish Government and the European Regional Development Fund.
