Demand for finite resources is increasing, which has raised resource security concerns up businesses’ list of priorities.

Businesses are now driving revenue through the commercialisation of resource and waste management systems, adopting circular production models, increasing profitability through remanufacturing and reducing their exposure to resource scarcity risks.

The Aldersgate Group is particularly focused at the moment in engaging EU institutions around the design of the EU’s Circular Economy Package and on the UK's upcoming Resources and Waste Strategy.
