About Circular Glasgow

What is Circular Glasgow?

Circular Glasgow is an initiative of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce. It is a movement to inspire businesses of all sizes to innovate and become future-proof by adopting circular strategies.

Connecting companies across the city, we help them to open up new revenue streams, increase competitive advantage and realise financial savings using a range of practical initiatives.

Circular Glasgow's Vision

To create a sustainable economy and a city with an enviable quality of life.

We aim to achieve this by inspiring businesses to assess and implement the circular economy in order to position Glasgow as a leading circular city.

What is a circular economy?

A circular economy is one in which every product is created with the intent of extending its lifespan and adding value wherever possible through this process.

Circular Economy is a direct challenge to the current ‘take, make, dispose’ linear economy mentality.

Partners and Funders

Glasgow Chamber of Commerce hosts Circular Glasgow and is responsible for delivering this programme alongside key stakeholders: Zero Waste Scotland, Circle Economy (global market experts based in the Netherlands), Glasgow City Council and the University of Strathclyde. Circular Glasgow is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
