Circular Yorkshire

Circular Yorkshire Week 2021

This year's campaign, running 15-22 October 2021, focuses on supporting towns and communities to understand and use circular economy practices.

Circular Yorkshire is a campaign to raise awareness and inspire action around the circular economy as a way to make our region, its businesses and communities greener, fairer and stronger..

Building a circular economy in York & North Yorkshire will be a vital part of achieving our ambitions for the region’s economy to be carbon negative by 2040. By embracing the circular economy, communities can build stronger and more inclusive connections and businesses can become more profitable.

What is a circular economy? It’s a way of working that promotes using only what we need, stopping waste and making the most of all our resources, including people, products, services, systems and our planet.

How can it benefit our region? It will create a thriving & resilient economy that benefits business and the environment for all people now and in the future.

Collaboration is key to our success. Businesses small and large, local authorities, towns and our communities must act together.
