Challenging and supporting businesses across Northern Ireland to be more sustainable

About ARENA Network

ARENA Network is the environmental sustainability arm of Business in the Community. We are working with organisations of all shapes and sizes to help them understand and reduce their impacts.

Towards the Circular Economy

Our goal is to encourage Northern Ireland firms to move away from the traditional ‘produce → use → dispose’ way of operating towards a ‘circular’ approach to resource management which –

  • Keeps resources in use for as long as possible
  • Extracts maximum value from resources
  • Regenerates products/materials at the end of their use
  • Provides opportunities for efficiencies and cost savings
