The Glasgow Business Award for Innovation in Business
Circular Glasgow is a movement to inspire businesses of all sizes to innovate and become future-proof by adopting circular strategies.
This involves a programme of activity aimed at SMEs to provide support, tools and expert knowledge. It connects companies across the city, helping them to open up new revenue streams, increase competitive advantage and realise financial savings using a range of practical initiatives.
Circular Glasgow is an initiative of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce with a vision to create a circular economy and a city with an enviable quality of life. We aim to achieve this by inspiring businesses to assess and implement the circular economy in order to position Glasgow as a leading circular city.
We aim to encourage Glasgow based organisations to innovate by looking at their current business models differently through the adoption of new circular design-based strategies.
A circular economy is one in which every product is created with the intent of extending its life span and adding value wherever possible through this process. Circular economy is a direct challenge to the current ‘take, make, dispose’ linear economy mentality.
