Circular Economy Taskforce

Business in the Community’s Circular Economy Taskforce brings together a group of CEOs and other senior executives committed to delivering a high impact programme to bring the circular economy to life.

The Taskforce’s programme of work centres around three areas of activity:
  • Raising awareness and inspiring action towards greater circularity through thought leadership, knowledge sharing and networking events
  • Building a programme of practical collaborative action and innovation, currently focused on the Circular Office/Workplace initiative with sector-focused work being developed
  • Working with Government to promote the policy frameworks and support needed to unleash circular economy opportunities in the UK

If you would like more information about the Taskforce please contact Libby Sandbrook, Head of Circular Economy
