To ask the Scottish Government what information it holds on the scheme, Zero Waste Zones, and whether it will publish any reports regarding this.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 22 March 2017

The Zero Waste Zones initiative was a pilot developed by Zero Waste Scotland in 2011-12 to provide an award framework for communities, schools or workplaces taking action to reduce waste. Sixteen pilot projects were developed.

Learning from the pilots was taken forward into the business-focused Resource Efficiency Pledge scheme, launched in 2014. Around 200 organisations have progressed through the Resource Efficiency Pledge scheme.
