Advance London’s objective is to create the conditions necessary for innovative circular economy SMEs to thrive in London. The comprehensive investment programme delivers a suite of initiatives, including acceleration/incubation, venture capital and private equity to support London’s circular economy SMEs and emerging innovators. This is complemented by a free business support service for London based SMEs operating within the circular economy, or looking to transition to a more circular business model. This three year programme is jointly funded by LWARB and the European Regional Development Fund.

Resource London is a programme of support for London waste authorities delivered as a partnership between LWARB and WRAP the government’s resource efficiency body. This replaces LWARB’s efficiencies programme which ran from 2012 to 2015 and identified savings in excess of £11 million per annum over 5 years for London’s local authorities. More »

A circular economy is one in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end their life. It is a more efficient and environmentally sound alternative to the traditional linear economy in which we make, use and dispose of resources. LWARB will work in partnership with the GLA, private and wider public sector to create the right conditions in the capital to allow circular economy to flourish. More »

LWARB works with London’s waste authorities and businesses to promote and encourage the production of less waste; increase the proportion that is reused or recycled; and drive methods of collection, treatment and disposal of waste that are more beneficial to the environment.
