Scotland’s Waste to Wealth


Time: to


In partnership with Zero Waste Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage and The Scottish Forum on Natural Capital, this event will provide examples of best practice and practical steps we can all take to turn Waste into Wealth.

With just 12 years remaining to prevent catastrophic climate change, the need to act is now.  What if we could build a smarter, innovative approach to waste management and transform waste into a valuable resource fit for long-term wealth creation? 

Business in the Community believes this can be done through practical individual action and game-changing collaborative innovation and we invite you to join us on this journey.
Scotland’s Waste to Wealth is part of an ambitious programme of research, learning and action bringing together business, government, academia and civil society to unlock opportunities to double the nation’s resource productivity and reduce avoidable waste by 2030. 

At our event in Glasgow on 19 February 2019 we will hear from high-profile business leaders, politicians and innovators including Jeremy Darroch, Chief Executive of Sky and Chair of Business in the Community. Attendees will discover practical steps we can all take to turn Waste into Wealth. 

We’re delighted to be supported by our event partners Zero Waste Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage and The Scottish Forum on Natural Capital.
