Running a circular economy business can feel a little lonely at times – there’s no blueprint for creating a business that goes against the mainstream of our ‘take, make, dispose’ economy! By joining the community, you’ll discover a whole host of fellow circular business owners to share experiences with, as well as having access to the business transformation team’s circular economy and business expertise. Gain relevant insights, best practices and shared knowledge especially aimed at circular business models to give you that reassurance that you’re on the right track
The businesses that join our community display the ReLondon Community Network Badge to show that they belong to a growing movement of circular economy SMEs.
Thanks to funding from ReLondon and the European Regional Development Fund, membership to the community, worth £500-£1000 per year, is fully funded so costs nothing to its SME members.

Making connections is key to creating a successful business, whether that’s with potential customers, partners or investors. Here at ReLondon, we’re uniquely placed to help you do that. We’re a partnership between the Mayor of London and London’s boroughs working with all sorts of stakeholders to deliver practical pilots and projects, research, communications campaigns and business support to help make London a low carbon, circular city.
SMEs that join the community not only join a network of like-minded businesses, but a whole ecosystem of circular economy actors, gaining access to many other wider opportunities.
Who can join?
To join, your business needs to be…
- An SME (fewer than 250 employees)…
- Operating in London…
- Applying one of the five circular economy business models within their business to create value for their customers while reducing either their own, or their customers’ environmental impact.
If you’re not quite at the point of implementing a circular economy business model, you can access ReLondon’s guides and resources or check out our Redesign your Business for opportunities to access grants and advice to help you take those first steps.
