The Circular Economy – an Industrial System that is restorative by design, or more simply put, “designs out” waste!

There is a massive opportunity to rethink and redesign the way we make things. Looking beyond the current take-make-waste extractive industrial model, a circular economy aims to redefine growth, focusing on positive society-wide benefits.

On Friday 14th June 2019, in partnership with Circularity Capital, Livingston James hosted business leaders from across the country in ‘The Circular Boardroom” of our Edinburgh office. Each of these business leaders were completely invested in the adoption of this philosophy and all share a passion for how corporate businesses, and not just individuals, can play their own role in bringing about positive change.

David Mowat, Partner for Circularity Capital, gave a brief presentation on the business’ mission – to deliver value for investors by supporting SME growth and innovation in the circular economy. A spirited debate on how to maximise value in the circular economy then followed, with interesting input from all.

There were many take-aways from both David and the delegates around the table, but under Chatham House rules, they will remain for those in attendance only. We certainly left with our “circular hats” on, better informed and feeling enthused at the prospect of a circular future.
