Around 15% of Aotearoa New Zealand’s domestic long-lived carbon emissions relate to our buildings. Using circular economy (CE) thinking to address construction waste – a major contributor to these emissions – can improve the environmental performance of these buildings.
In this webinar we'll launch our latest whitepaper that explores the circular economy in the construction industry. The circular economy is often seen as a potential solution that lowers waste and reduces carbon emissions. However, systems that keep materials in circulation can have a higher carbon footprint than conventional linear systems. The challenge is to achieve both outcomes, i.e. a low carbon circular economy. Minimising construction waste is an activity that ticks both boxes.
CE is an economy which keeps products and materials in use, designs out waste and pollution and regenerates natural systems.
The webinar will cover
- The potential of circular economy to lower costs, reduce waste and regenerate natural systems
- Finding the sweet spot of carbon reduction and circular economy
- On the ground examples of designing waste out of construction projects
- How circular economy relates to reducing carbon emissions
It will be useful for:
- Executives (CEOs, CFOs etc.)
- Sustainability managers
- Product Managers
- Environmental Managers
- Marketing Managers
