Event description

Description

The circular economy is one that’s sustainable, and as much as possible eliminates waste. Fundamental to the success of the circular economy in Scotland is how modern buildings and modern construction materials can be designed to be better used, last longer and be able to be used for other purposes at the end of their life cycle.




Zero Waste Scotland in partnership with Resource Futures, is offering free support to eight SMEs in Scotland to help identify such circular business opportunities.

By attending this half-day workshop at the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC), delegates will have the opportunity to:

- Understand how to take advantage of the programme of Zero Waste Scotland business support and how it could best apply to them

- Learn how other businesses in the global construction sector have applied circular economy business models

- Have 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

- Tour the Innovation Factory where further discussions can be had in relation to how innovation can play a part in turning traditional waste streams into future opportunities

- Network with construction sector colleagues




Refreshments will be provided, and all participants are welcome to use the CSIC business space and network with other attendees after the event.

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.

Please email allan.sandilands@resourcefutures.co.uk for more information and an application form.

For more information regarding the workshop please contact Jennifer Smart at CSIC - jsmart@cs-ic.org
