Join us for this essential Circular Economy event where we reveal research into circular principles for construction materials and offer an insight into circular solutions that are being implemented on projects globally.

With the vast majority of construction materials being delivered via linear business models and many technical constraints to recycling, there are hefty challenges being faced by materials companies to further embody the principles of a circular economy. UKGBC has carried out some primary research into the ‘state of the nation’ in this area and is pleased to reveal the results at this in-person event. 

Tackling material reuse from the supplier side and increasing pressure for reused materials is key to unlocking a more circular built environment. Innovators from the world of manufacturing and material supply will discuss their progress towards circular solutions for the built environment. Hear about material innovation and supply chain advances, as well as an analysis of the challenges we all still face. 

This event offers an opportunity to network with leaders in circular economy thinking and professionals across the industry seeking innovative solutions to circular manufacturing.
