CPD Webinex - Circularity in the Built Environment - Thursday 29th February, 11am
Globally, construction is responsible for an estimated third of the world's overall waste, and up to 40% of the world’s 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. The building and construction industry is crucial to this shift. At the end of the presentation attendees will be able to;
Understand the concept of circularity in design and construction
Identify and explain the three key principles of circularity
Define a ‘Circularity Score’ and identify high performing products
Know how to apply this new knowledge to your projects.
