LWARB’s Circular London programme creates the conditions for the city to thrive, through enabling and promoting circular economy across a wide range of stakeholders.
The programme has a broad remit to accelerate the circular economy in London and includes our world-leading Advance London business advisory programme. Which is jointly funded by LWARB and the European Regional Development Fund – an investment programme designed to offer support to circular economy businesses at various stage of maturity.
It also includes our new Circular London Accelerator delivered in partnership with Carbon Trust, supporting circular innovation in the built environment sector.
Work areas include:
- Corporate engagement
- Circular investment for London’s start-ups, SMEs and innovators
- Policy development
- Business model pilots and demonstrators
- SME business support
- Networking and community building
- Accelerator programmes for circular innovators
As part of the programme, LWARB published a Circular Economy Route Map in June 2017. And in 2018 launched a community for circular economy advocates as part of London’s first ever Circular Economy Week.
The community continues to grow and gather organisations in London to encourage collaboration and demonstration. To find out more about the community and Circular Economy Week, visit www.circularlondon.org
