Leading the Way in the Public Sector
On 22 June, we held the second in a series of joint webinars with Zero Waste Scotland on planning for Net Zero in the public sector. This webinar focussed on delivering net zero with a particular emphasis on procurement and the circular economy. The session builds on the first joint webinar, held on 6 May 2020.
Net Zero Plan
Following the publication of Zero Waste Scotland’s Net Zero Plan on 8th June, Fraser Millar, Environment Analyst, provided a brief update on the progress with implementing the plan, including the development of a new carbon calculator and a commuting footprint tool (COCA), which is currently underway. Once complete, members will be able to access this free tool.
We also welcomed Claire Guerin, Sector Manager - Sustainable Procurement at Zero Waste Scotland. Claire explored how circular procurement can support a green recovery transition by:
- building resilient supply chains;
- increasing demand for shorter, more localised supply chains; and
- stimulating circular (and innovative) products and services.
