Reinvigorating recycling, accelerating the circular economy and helping London become a zero carbon city.

 
 

Advance London

The London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB) is a partnership of the Mayor of London and the London boroughs to improve waste and resource management. The city’s economic and environmental future depends on our transitioning to a low-carbon circular economy. And at LWARB, we work to ensure that London’s businesses, local government and communities thrive by helping them make the very best use of resources and materials.

 

To do this we have two programmes of work:

Our  Circular London programme creates the conditions required to allow a circular economy to flourish in the capital. A circular economy is a more efficient and environmentally sound alternative to the traditional linear economy. It 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.

LWARB’s work in this area ranges from strategic and practical advisory support to business – both large corporates and SMES – to circular investments and accelerators; from business model development and piloting to policy consultation and guidance; and from building communities and collaborative networks across the capital to the promotion and support of emerging innovators.

Our Resource London programme supports London’s waste authorities, providing one-to-one operational and behaviour change support across the capital.  The programme team delivers innovative research-led service improvement initiatives such as the London flats recycling project, as well as running London-wide consumer campaigns including London Recycles and Love Not Landfill.

Our business plan for 2020 – 2025 places the reduction of London’s consumption based emissions of CO2e at its core – aiming to reduce them by identifying leverage points that will enable an accelerated and just transition to a circular economy. To reduce consumption-based emissions, LWARB will place a renewed emphasis on activities that reduce waste and increase recycling.
