Circular Glasgow leads the way for Scotland’s circular economy

Circular Glasgow, hosted by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, has been shortlisted for a circular award that celebrates the most innovative sustainability projects across the UK.

In the running for Circular Project of the Year at the Business Green Leader Awards, Circular Glasgow will represent Scotland as the only Scottish project shortlisted across the 25 categories.

Now in its ninth year, the awards will take place on Wednesday 26 June at The Brewery in London, where the Circular Glasgow team will go head to head with seven other projects.

Circular Glasgow, in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland and funded by the European Regional Development Fund, works with companies across the city helping them to open up new revenue streams, increase competitive advantage and realise financial savings using a range of practical tools.

From new collaborations between Glasgow-based bakeries and breweries, and fertiliser for soil made from waste coffee grounds, to bespoke construction summits and a range of events, the team has already engaged with over 650 businesses to date and is playing an increasing role in helping the city to achieve its ambition to become one of the world’s first circular cities.

Circular Glasgow was the starting point for a wider programme of cities and regions work across Scotland, led and funded by Zero Waste Scotland in partnership with local chambers of commerce and other key local stakeholders.
