About the event

Social enterprises are worth 3% of UK GDP – that’s three times larger than the country’s agricultural sector. These organisations are also leading the way when it comes to repair, reuse and remanufacture.

Drawing on social enterprises – which also create around 5% of all UK employment – will be key to the circular economy transition. In this session, attendees heard from organisations leading the way in the circular economy sector.

Session audience 

  • Social enterprises
  • Small business owners
  • Local authority officers (waste, campaigns, projects, environment, climate, economic development etc)
