Circular Economy Business Support Service

05 Jan 2018

Are you a Small to Medium sized Enterprise (SME) working in the Scottish Construction Sector?

Do you want to explore the business benefits of being circular?

Do you want to develop an alternative business approach or product which will differentiate you from the competition?

If the answer is yes, then you need to apply to the Zero Waste Scotland’s Circular Economy Business Support Service where up to 30 days of FREE business support can be accessed.

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.

Zero Waste Scotland are seeking to delivering a programme of support to eight small and medium enterprises (SMEs) who are looking to explore circular economy opportunities in the Scottish Construction sector.

Applications are now being invited from organisations who wish to be one of the eight businesses to participate in this round of free circular economy business support.  The application form is available now and the deadline for submitting applications is 12 noon on the 16 February 2018.  The application form is available by emailing:

To support interested applicants a half day workshop will be held at the CSIC in Hamilton on the 7th February 2018.

This workshop will explore further  the programme of business support available to SMEs, providing case study examples from around the globe of circular activity in the Construction Sector.  A particular focus will be the opportunity for a 1-2-1 discussion of project proposals and the chance to fully explore the circular economy potential of an existing business, product, process or service.

For more information regarding the workshop please contact Jennifer Smart at the CSIC - or sign up below.
