Circular North-east aims to inform and inspire businesses in the North-east of Scotland to adopt circular strategies. We seek to connect companies across the region, helping them realise the benefits the circular economy presents to diversify, reduce costs, gain better value from their waste and explore the potential new business opportunities it presents.
The circular economy is about designing out waste and moving from a throw-away society to one where we seek to find useful ways to use the waste we generate. This might be by repairing, refurbishing or reusing products to extend their life span, using waste for different purposes giving it greater value or using one companies waste as a raw materials for a different process.
