Industry support to adopt circular approaches to construction
A global climate emergency has been declared. Roughly three planets would be required.
If everyone lived the way people live in Scotland. It is imperative that Scots live within the means of one planet and that organisations rise to meet the challenge.
The Scottish Government has set a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2045. The built environment sector has a key role to play in helping to reduce climate impacts. Adopting circular economy approaches to construction helps to conserve resources, and reduce carbon emissions, by “making things last”.
Zero Waste Scotland is funded by the Scottish Government and the European Structural Fund to provide free support to help accelerate circular economy in the construction sector.
From planning and design through to demolition, we can work with you to maximise resource and minimise waste. Let’s work together to go further and faster in tackling climate change.
