Share Peterborough is part of the Circular Peterborough initiative, and a great way to create the UK’s first circular city.

Share Peterborough facilitates circularity amongst the business community, providing an easy way to tap into local resources and make the most of them. It helps generating economic, social and environmental value to each member, and to the whole City too.

By taking a circular approach we help to create a city which is a better place to live, work and invest in.

Economic Benefits

Buying or procuring supplies and discarding waste both weight on companies’ budgets. Being more resource efficient and extending products’ lifecycles reduces waste and saves money. Another company’s waste could be a source of supply to you. Something that you may consider waste, and that incurs a cost to send to landfill, can be of use for another company. Re-using, sharing and giving unwanted or under-used products, services and resources makes better economic sense.

Social Benefits

By bringing businesses together, Share Peterborough facilitates conversations that lead to better relationships, increased knowledge and new opportunities.

Environmental Benefits

In a world of finite resources, we need to think about our environmental footprint. By reducing waste and reusing products and services, we are directly contributing to the local economy and improving the environment in which our city exists.
