Established in 1983, Unusual Rigging is the UK’s most experienced provider of rigging and stage engineering solutions, working across Europe, principally in the entertainment, special event, exhibition and presentation industries. Unusual is committed to working towards making all aspects of their business part of a fully circular business model.
Over the past few years, Unusual Rigging has been implementing the key concepts of a circular economy, which looks beyond the current ‘take-make-dispose’ extractive industrial model to focus on positive, society-wide benefits. In the circular model, businesses aim to keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life. As such, these actions help to reduce waste, drive greater resource productivity and help to mitigate any negative effects on human life and our ecosystem.
Under the circular model, more than 50 tonnes worth of ‘technical nutrients’ have been reused in the past year alone and CO2 emissions have been reduced by over 60% comparative to the previous year. In addition, Unusual has also committed to running on renewables at its main site in Northamptonshire, as well as reducing or recycling waste wherever possible – from their offices to factories.
Unusual Rigging has been nominated as a finalist in the prestigious Circulars Awards. The Circulars – an initiative of the World Economic Forum and the Forum of Young Global Leaders, is the world’s premier circular economy award programme, and aims to recognise individuals and organisations that have made notable contributions to the circular economy in the private sector, public sector and society.
