Circular Yorkshire case study confirms circularity is good for business
Amur joins other local businesses included in new set of resources launched through Circular Yorkshire’s new strategy and action plan
Circular Yorkshire is an ambitious initiative designed to transform the county into the UK’s first circular region. In November, it launched a major strategy outlining the actions, outcomes and measuring techniques that consortium partners will undertake to drive circular business and economic growth. Complementing the strategy are case studies demonstrating the economic viability of circular business.
Amur joined organisations such as Yorkshire Water, Community Repaint and Warp It in the Waste Reduction section to show how waste reduction and better use of resources can provide robust business models.
With two national parks, high quality agricultural land and a large food manufacturing base within its borders, Yorkshire hosts a thriving economy. Circular Yorkshire was set up to future-proof the county against the effects of climate change and drive a more robust economy based on circular principles.
Local authorities in the area have already declared a climate emergency, while local enterprise partnerships have developed a strategy to decarbonise energy and energy-intensive sectors. Demonstration projects, or beacons, are inspiring others to take action.
Good luck to Circular Yorkshire and all the organisations involved!
