Circular Economy Opportunities

  • 23-May-2018
  • 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Are you interested in gaining competitive advantage and generating profit in a more sustainable way?

We are reaching an economic tipping point, where businesses that seize the opportunity to explore and develop sustainable models for growth will gain significant advantages.

Customers, investors and civil society are challenging businesses to raise their game: to generate wealth in a manner that is compatible with meeting local and global challenges – from climate change to social and environmental wellbeing.

Are you considering how innovating your business might benefit you?

£18 million is being invested as grant funding by Zero Waste Scotland  to small and medium sized enterprises who are helping to create a more circular economy.

The Circular Economy Investment Fund is a funding opportunity for businesses and organisations in Scotland working in all business and social economy sectors.

Whole Earth Futures, as part of a consortium working in partnership with ZWS, are offering expert one-to-one support for businesses in Scotland to help develop their own circular business model and would like to invite you to a free event to learn more about this opportunity and to explore potentially untapped opportunities within your sector. During the session, they will cover the following:

  • Exploring benefits of a Circular Economy
  • Business support funding for initial project scoping
  • Longer-term funding (up to £1M for criteria-fit projects)
  • Testimonials from previous participants of the support service

Tea, Coffee and refreshments available at the event. Contact Shona McDermott for more information at: info@wholeearthfutures.com The event will take place in Glasgow on Wed 23rd May, between 9:30 - 11:30. Please let Shona know if you'd like to attend.
