SB 13-72 A Circular Economy

This briefing explores the challenges associated with meeting our resource demands; introduces the concept of a ‘circular economy’ where materials are retained in use for as long as possible; considers the opportunities and barriers associated with pursuing such an approach and sets out some approaches and interventions that have been proposed to support the development of a circular economy.

The briefing also provides an update on Scotland’s approach to resource efficiency and waste over the past decade and summarises some of the opportunities in Scotland that could support the development of a more circular approach to resource use in Scotland.
