Circular Economy Week is back!

10-14th June 2019

 
 

Advance London

The London Waste and Recycling Board works in conjunction with the Mayor of London and London Councils to improve waste and resource management in the capital. 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:

The Circular London programme aims to create the conditions required to allow a circular economy to flourish in the capital. 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’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.

Resource London is a programme of support for London’s 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. The programme team provides one-to-one operational and behavior change support to boroughs and waste authorities across the capital, 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, Love Not Landfill and the EU Life-funded sustainable food campaign, Small Change Big Difference.

Our business plan for 2018-20 sets out our plan to work with the public and private sector to increase recycling and to reduce waste through the support of circular economy business models.
