About the Event

Join us to hear how material passports can support circular construction and meet with peers in the built environment value chain to support opportunities to grow innovation and collaboration across industry.

Current construction and demolition practices are not circular, and accounts for around one-third of global material consumption and waste. By treating buildings and infrastructure as ‘materials banks’ and leveraging them as sources of valuable, high quality materials, that can be easily dismantled, recovered, and reused, we can better support a circular construction industry. Materials passports can help enable this by documenting data of materials used in a product or construction, increasing the visibility of materials as an added value and confidence for reuse.

Any built environment stakeholder interested in circular construction, including but not limited to: investors, developers, local authorities, designers, advisory services, contractors, and product manufacturers.

Background:

Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities (CIRCuIT) is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project bringing together 31 ambitious partners across the entire built environment chain in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Helsinki Region and Greater London. This four-year project aims to bridge the implementation gap between theory, practice and policy and showcase how circular construction approaches can be scaled and replicated across the UK and Europe, to support the creation of regenerative cities.
