Globally, it is estimated that construction is responsible for one third of the world’s waste and up to 40% of total carbon dioxide emissions. If we want to reduce the quantity of waste and emissions generated during the construction process, we need to take a closer look at the life cycle of the products we build with.
It is becoming clearer that a transition to a circular economy is necessary to avert environmental disaster and mitigate the impact of climate change; and that the building and construction industry is crucial to this shift.
This session of CPD Live examines the circular economy model, its significance, and the tactics that designers and architects can implement to benefit businesses, people, and the environment. Our speakers highlight the key circular principles and how they apply to selecting building materials, and point the way to a more sustainable future.
