Make circular economy activity a real part of your everyday business operation

Learn. Engage. Collaborate. Accelerate.

Currently we take virgin raw materials, make things, use them for a while and then throw them away. This traditional, linear approach is wasteful and it is causing problems for our environment in all sorts of ways. From plastics in the oceans to overflowing landfill sites. This puts us in danger of running out of some of our most valuable, scarce resources.

In contrast, a circular economy is designed to keep products and materials circulating within the economy at their highest value for as long as possible, through re-use, recycling, remanufacturing, delivering products as services and sharing.

Circular London creates the conditions for the city to thrive, through enabling and promoting circular economy across a wide range of stakeholders.

The programme has a broad remit to accelerate the circular economy in London and includes our world-leading Advance London business advisory programme. Which is jointly funded by LWARB and the European Regional Development Fund – an investment programme designed to offer support to circular economy businesses at various stage of maturity.
