About the speakers

Tevi is an ERDF-funded programme supporting Cornish SMEs to grow whist contributing to Cornwall’s environmental growth priorities and circular economy transition. Tevi currently supports over 300 enterprises through bespoke consultancy services, challenge networks and a grant scheme. The programme’s circular economy aspects are led primarily by the University of Exeter’s Business School. Tevi is delivered by the University of Exeter in partnership with Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Cornwall Council and Cornwall Development Company.

Circle Economy, based in the Netherlands, aims to accelerate the practical and scalable implementation of the circular economy. As an impact organisation, they connect and empower a global community to create the conditions for systemic transformation. Circle works alongside businesses, cities and governments to identify opportunities to make the transition to the circular economy, and provide a powerful combination of practical and scalable solutions to turn these opportunities into reality.

‍Circular Tayside is an ERDF-funded programme administered by Zero Waste Scotland. The programme is delivered by a partnership between Dundee and Angus Chamber of Commerce and Perthshire Chamber of Commerce and it aims to help local businesses and organisations transition towards circular economy. The project was launched after a 2018 report identified a financial potential of £404 million for Tayside businesses that would adopt circular economy practices. Key sectors are construction, manufacturing and agriculture. Circular Tayside aims to help local businesses in the transition towards a circular economy and offers access to Zero Waste Scotland support that includes free webinars, workshops, 1-2-1 support, business consultancy and grant funding. With the carefully tailored range of support, we can help businesses at every stage, from idea generation, to market analysis and funding for project development.
