SevernNet, working with a number of local businesses, Resource Futures, GENeco, Bristol Cit Council and the Universities of Bristol and the West of England are developing a Circular Economy initiative across the area.

Key aims include:

  • Enabling interested businesses to come together periodically to share experiences at the Circular Economy Forum
  • Developing a vision for SevernNet Area as a Circular Economy in 2050. What would this look like? Could the area be a leader? How could this benefit existing and future businesses across the area?
  • Supporting the above, working with Bristol Green Capital Partnership to establish the SevernNet area as a pilot Zero Waste Zone as part of the One City Plan.
  • Participating in the Bristol Going for Gold initiative
  • Supporting local businesses in understanding what the circular economy might mean to them, including one or two pilot projects.
  • Assessing what would be required to undertake a resource mapping exercise across the area to look at opportunities for reducing cost and waste
