Today, cities demand almost two-thirds of global energy, produce up to 80% of greenhouse gas emissions and 50% of global waste. As host city to next year’s annual UN climate conference, COP 26, Glasgow demonstrates the role circular economy can play in providing a business response to the above challenges, while acting as a driver for economic growth, jobs and environmental quality.  


Read on to find out how your business can get involved in the transition towards a circular economy. 


Join Circular Glasgow’s Get Inspired 2020 week for a series of “Conversations with” webinars where keynote speakers share their insights and learnings on ways to adopt innovative, business led circular strategies.
