The Resource Management Association Scotland (RMAS) is a not-for-profit, non-political membership organisation for micro, small and medium sized resource management companies operating in Scotland.
We work hard to ensure our members are well informed and that priority issues, risks, and opportunities are communicated, and represented effectively to Government, its various agencies, the commercial sector and the public.
This group has representatives from leading academic institutions, resource sector specialists and innovators who help to uncover and develop new technologies, processes and plans to realise commercial opportunities for members.
Micro, small and medium sized enterprises operating across the resource management sector in Scotland are ideally placed to adapt, innovate and positively contribute to help make the Circular Economy Strategy in Scotland a practical reality and to ensure the sector positively contributes to global challenges.
We facilitate dialogue and understanding with Scottish Government and regulators on compliance and policy implementation, including participating in parliamentary committees.
Having a big sale, on-site celebrity, or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it.
We engage with members to provide technical signposting, best practice, technical guidance and information on key priority themes. This will include the provision and coordination of access to specialist advisors and training.
We collate member opinions and respond to consultations.
We provide networking opportunities to support shared understanding, knowledge exchange, policy impacts, collaborative partnerships and commercial opportunities.
We ensure the sector is fully supported and encouraged to develop new systems, processes and business opportunities by supporting innovation networks and signposting research and development grant opportunities.
