Lochaber businesses engaged with Conscious Consumption

On Monday 25 March, the Highland Community Waste Partnership (HCWP) joined forces with Lochaber Chamber of Commerce and the Edinburgh Climate Change Institute to host a session for businesses looking to reduce waste, cut costs, and make a positive impact on the environment.

The Environmental Sustainability for Business event featured presentations from the Climate Springboard programme, Zero Waste Scotland, as well as HCWP Partners Lochaber Environmental Group, the Highland Good Food Partnership and Keep Scotland Beautiful.

Interested parties had the opportunity to learn about and discuss the Net Zero landscape for businesses and learn about a number of useful tools and initiatives developed to support them.

Our Conscious Consumption campaign aims to raise awareness of how both consumers and businesses can play their part in reducing the amount of resources that we use and waste. As part of this, businesses are invited to get involved with a number of initiatives to help them reduce the impact of food waste and single-use food and drink packaging in their operations. This includes:

  • A food waste reduction toolkit
  • An in-vessel composter network
  • A reusable packaging campaign
  • A single-use cup recycling pilot

The event also saw the launch of Refill Lochaber, which aims to increase the visibility and awareness of packaging-free reuse and refill options in and around Lochaber.
