Waste & Circularity

Creating a circular economy helps organisations keep products and resources at their highest utility and value for as long as possible, minimising the generation of waste.

Circularity Overview

SLR supports clients in understanding and implementing circular practices across their value chain. Our core services include solutions that focus on reducing or diverting waste to better fates through reuse and recycling, alongside opportunities for circular solutions that exist at every stage of the life cycle.
