Scotland is introducing a range of ambitious policies to reduce waste, increase resource efficiency, reuse and recycling. The impact assessment processes undertaken to date have shown that there is currently a shortage of evidence on the equalities and economic impacts of these policies. More research is needed to gather evidence to better understand the likely impacts of this range of policies on groups across Scotland.
This research aims to fill the evidence gaps in relation to the equalities impacts of proposed zero waste and circular economy policies.
