IndiNature presenting at Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce 23 May: Why circular economies are good for business.

May 19, 2018

It was a huge pleasure to be invited to present at this event. On the panel above with Liz McAreavey, CEO Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce; Chris Radway, Technical Director and Circular Economy Knowledge Leader, Ricardo EE; David Thompson, CEO Food and Drink Federation and Cheryl Robb, Circular Economy Cities and Regions Sector Manager, Zero Waste Scotland.

 

Below is from the ECC news site:

 

"The Scottish Government published ‘Making Things Last – A Circular Economy Strategy for Scotland’ in 2016 which set out the Scottish Government’s priorities for moving towards a more circular economy – where products and materials are kept in high value use for as long as possible.

 

The circular economy is one that’s sustainable, and as much as possible eliminates waste. But it’s more than that. It’s an all-encompassing approach to life and business.

 

It’s about developing new business models, designing products more smartly, remanufacturing and reprocessing to create new products from old, and repairing what we can – all to keep products and materials within the economy for as long as possible.

 

Benefits to your company:

  • Save your business, customers, and suppliers money

  • Capture more value from your materials and resources

  • Develop new markets and gain new customers

  • Build loyalty with your customer base

  • Satisfy changing customer needs and expectations

  • Increase the security and price stability of your supply chain

  • Attract, retain, and engage your employees

  • Build your brand and reputation as an innovative organisation

  • Exceed government regulations and stay ahead of new requirements

There are currently significant funding opportunities and support for SMEs that are interested in investigating circular economy opportunities. Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce are managing Circular Edinburgh –  circular economy project in partnership with Zero Waste . Circular Edinburgh, funded by Zero Waste Scotland, supports work that will deliver circular economy growth. It is supported by the European Regional Development Fund through the £73million Resource Efficiency Circular Economy Accelerator Programme."
