Production and consumption patterns are currently linear. We make a product from raw materials and the by-product is waste, or we consume products which we discard when they are no longer of value to us. In a circular economy, we would no longer generate waste, what we currently call waste would either be reused for another purpose, refurbished or designed out of the process.
With population growth continuing at an unprecedented rate and growing pressure on our natural environment the need to think circularly will be inevitable. A growing number of companies both large and small that are finding novel ways to prevent or avoid waste.
The business operating environment continues to change at a phenomenal pace, technology developments, changes in social perception and increased understanding of environmental, issues have all had their impact. Adopting circular economy principles offers the opportunity to be at the forefront of this transition
This breakfast will explore the concept of the circular economy and identify opportunities for business here in the North-east to save costs, reduce supply chain risks, obtain funding and identify new products and services while building loyalty in an evolving marketplace.
This Business Breakfast will launch The Ultimate Business Show (TUBS). TUBS brings together both Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce members and non-members from across a range of sectors who provide cost-effective and efficient solutions for your business.
Attendees of the breakfast will gain immediate access to the Show afterwards to visit exhibitors, learn from topical seminars and network with businesses from across the North-east.
The Chamber aims to help the business community make the most of its connections as part of the ultimate business network.
