‘Circular Economy and Beyond’ with Zero Waste Scotland

EDAS are joined by Zero Waste Scotland for an online introductory session on the Circular Economy, on Tuesday the 22nd of August from 14:00 - 15:30.


The aim of the session is to recognise the co-benefits between the circular economy and economic development, and to identify areas where a joint impact can be made to advance socioeconomic outcomes for Scotland. This will be the beginning of a productive working relationship through which many avenues of networking and research can be explored and actioned. 

The event will also contextualise the recently published Circular Economy Bill, scheduled to be scrutinised and debated in the Scottish Parliament through 2023-4.

From Zero Waste Scotland, we will be joined by:

• John McCroskie – Director of Evidence and Insights 

• Ray Georgeson – Head of Policy, Impact, and Evaluation 

• Cheryl Robb – Partnership Manager 

• Lucas Scally – Assistant Economist 

• Robert Bain – Assistant Economist
