Aberdeen City and Shire launches circular economy survey



Business Gateway Aberdeen City and Shire are seeking the views of organisations on the circular economy to identify awareness, ambition for transitioning to circular models and the current level of circular economy businesses in the region.

The Scottish local authority is seeking organisations that are looking to reduce their environmental impact, implement changes to improve sustainability, or are facing challenges that limit what they would like to achieve.

Business Gateway Aberdeen City and Shire have appointed Enscape Consulting to carry out a circular economy baseline survey to help understand how the region can move towards net zero targets.

The survey aims to establish current awareness/understanding of the circular economy, identify the level of ambition within enterprises to take forward circular models and highlight the existing circular economy activity already underway in Aberdeen City & Shire.

The Council says the survey takes around five minutes to complete and closes on Friday 18 August at 5 pm.

According to the Scottish government’s estimations, around four-fifths of Scotland’s carbon footprint comes from the products and services that are being manufactured, used, and thrown away. The Council claims that material consumption and waste are the primary drivers of “nearly every environmental problem”.

The Council says the survey’s findings will be used to support businesses and the enterprise sector to become “more profitable and resource-efficient”, and will feed into the support offered by Business Gateway City and Shire.
