Zero Waste Scotland

Zero Waste Scotland exists to lead Scotland to use products and resources responsibly, focusing on where we can have the greatest impact on climate change. We are a not-for-profit environmental organisation, funded by the Scottish Government and European Regional Development Fund. Using evidence and insight, our goal is to inform policy, and motivate individuals and businesses to embrace the environmental, economic, and social benefits of a circular economy.

Reducing our demand for raw materials and energy, and maximising the life of products and materials, could significantly reduce our emissions.


Where and when did the project start?

Scotland — 2014


Where is the project offered today?

Scotland, United Kingdom of Great Britain
