Glasgow Climate Chamber | Glasgow Chamber of Commerce

Glasgow is now the Climate Capital City of the world

In November 2021 all eyes were on Glasgow as COP26 host, with governments, businesses and NGOs coming together to make commitments to address climate change. 

Glasgow Climate Chamber is our green and circular movement designed to progress the ambitions of COP26 and ensure that the summit results in genuine change, strong international relationships and long-term benefits for our city, members and young people.

What is Glasgow Climate Chamber?

For over 5 years, we’ve been committed to supporting and enabling actions to tackle climate change through our Circular Glasgow initiative and have been working alongside our Team Glasgow partners to oversee Glasgow’s ambitions for achieving net zero carbon by 2030 and becoming a circular city by 2045. 

Discussions have already begun on the legacy of COP26 and now with the Glasgow Climate Pact established, our city has an important role to play in  accelerating that change globally. 

Glasgow Climate Chamber will drive forward the ambitions to be this change. Through our Climate Chamber Mission and My Climate Path initiatives and our ongoing Circular Glasgow work, we are proactively connecting our members to green and circular opportunities and working to ensure the best legacy for our city and local businesses.

Circular Glasgow

Circular Glasgow is leading a business movement right now across our city

An initiative of Glasgow Chamber, Circular Glasgow aims to position our ‘Dear Green Place’ as a leading circular economy city by encouraging organisations to adopt innovation, design and circular thinking.

Working closely with partners including Glasgow City Council and Zero Waste Scotland, the Circular Glasgow team has been working with Glasgow businesses and listening to their needs in relation to the way we live, work, produce and consume.

Harnessing the potential of innovative design and technology to drive sustainability in business, it has engaged with leaders in the circular economy from the Netherlands, London and across the globe to change policy and create the tools to support businesses to become circular economy leaders.

Connecting, learning and collaborating are all instrumental in the transition to a circular economy. The Circular Glasgow Network aims to bring together entrepreneurs, innovators and circular economy enthusiasts from across the city to connect, share knowledge and ultimately find ways to future-proof their business.
