What is the Circular Economy?

The circular economy is one that’s sustainable, and as much as possible eliminates waste. Scotland is at the cutting edge of developing a more circular economy – designing products and services to keep materials in use for as long as possible. Businesses are already capitalising on the vast benefits of being circular and through new business models, are opening up sustainable opportunities for innovation and increased profitability, whilst addressing the issue of resource pressures.
