How is your business making sense of the circular economy?

We are inviting sustainability professionals to take part in an exclusive survey to gauge what practical steps businesses need to take in order to move waste up the hierarchy and ultimately design it out.

The survey forms part of our on-going Resource Revolution campaign which examines how raw material scarcity and energy security are driving radical new business models around waste prevention, recovery and reuse.

The findings will help inform an exclusive piece of research we conducting into how companies can derive greater value from resource efficiency, particular in the context of working towards a circular economy.

There is a real need for companies to understand better how best the principles of circularity can be applied in the business world so that they can make this journey with confidence.

Our research will look at how the circular economy agenda can be made relevant to business, regardless of its size or function, and the practicalities of making it work. It will assess where the opportunities lie for commercial gain, and pinpoint what barriers need to be overcome.

The findings will ultimately feed into a Blueprint that will help inform and guide businesses looking to make this transition.

If you are working for a business that produces waste, please take a few moments to complete our survey.


Please note the survey is not open for those companies involved in treating waste, such as waste contractors and other waste management companies.

Closing date for responses is August 16
