What does this involve?

Step Up to Net Zero is an initiative to encourage businesses in the Glasgow area to adopt circular economy practices. It is delivered by the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Glasgow City Council.

Through the programme, eligible businesses will be assessed and helped to develop an action plan to adopt circular principles and decarbonise.

The action plan will provide businesses with recommendations for:

  • carbon reduction
  • circularity
  • improved waste management

An individual will be placed in each business for 4 months to help the business achieve its goals. This individual will be given industry-specific training and support. The placement will be fully funded.

The programme will run for one year from September 2022 to September 2023. The 4-month placement for each business will begin by the end of February 2023.

Yes, if you:

  • have a Glasgow City Council postcode
  • have the capacity to host participants for 4 months
