Identifying Opportunities to Create Your Circular Office - Business in the Community

Identifying Opportunities to Create Your Circular Office

This Business in the Community (BITC) toolkit is intended as a self-assessment audit of circular office opportunities to help create a circular office. Download the toolkit and for each statement, tick to indicate whether you already have this in place, if it is an opportunity, or if it is not possible to implement in your organisation.

Creating a circular office

Find out more about the criteria to create a circular office in our Circular Office Guide. The guide shows organisations how to retain the value of materials by keeping them in circulation and eliminating waste in their workplaces.

What does a circular office do?

A circular office designs out waste and retains the maximum possible value of resources for as long as possible. The life-cycle of products and materials is considered from the outset, from procurement, through usage, to the end of service life. A circular office approach provides a perfect starting point for organisations keen to drive change towards a circular economy. This guide draws on the expertise of Business in the Community’s (BITC) Circular Economy Taskforce, and experiences from a range of organisations to guide people starting to create circular offices.

Business in the Community’s Circular Office Initiative

BITC’s Circular Office Initiative brings businesses together to learn, share, and try new ideas to bring the circular economy to life in their offices. It is about changing how we design, use and operate to eliminate waste and create more efficient, resilient spaces.
