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.

What is a circular economy?

Enough for everyone. Forever

The circular economy is a direct challenge to the ‘take-make-waste’ mentality of the linear economy. In a circular economy waste is minimised and resources maximised through long-lasting design, maintenance, repair, reuse, re-manufacturing, recycling and up-cycling.
