The London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB) has announced a tender to procure consultancy that could provide technical assistance for the development of a route map to transition the city of London towards a circular economy. CIWM reports that the route map could be published early in 2016.

In November, LWARB are expected to set out the case for circular economy implementation in London, with suggested areas of initial focus. Electronics, textiles, food and plastics are among the obvious starting points for projects in the city.

The potential adoption of a circular economy “plan” for one of the world’s largest economic centres is significant. Moreover, London is not a city dependent on manufacturing, demonstrating that economies reliant on the services and financial sectors, rather than “making things”, can also identify economic benefits in transitioning to a regenerative economy.
