IN REGENERATIVE CITIES
UKGBC study reveals essential role of circularity in delivering net zero buildings
CIRCuIT partner the UK Green Building Council has published new insight into the positive impact circular thinking can have in delivering whole life carbon reductions and value creation across construction projects.
The report aims to enable project decision-makers and key built environment stakeholders to strengthen the business case for implementing circularity.
Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities (CIRCuIT) is a collaborative project funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 programme, bringing together 31 ambitious partners across the entire built environment chain in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Helsinki Region and Greater London.
The project aims to bridge the implementation gap between theory, practice and policy and showcase how circular construction approaches can be scaled and replicated across Europe, to support the creation of regenerative cities.
