Technological advancements of the modern world have given individuals immense access to knowledge. However, with this access and the ability to share it comes the noise of billions of voices. This digital fog of information can make it difficult to fully understand and navigate the landscape of a topic. A consequence of this is that organisations are, often at their own expense, unnecessarily repeating the work of their peers and competitors.
For the built environment to become fully circular it must collectively act to share information and work together to create the change required. UKGBC’s mission is to work together for a better built environment, as such we have created a web-based actor and resource map of initiatives within the built environment around circular economy. The purpose of which is to allow organisations to use existing knowledge and methodologies to successfully implement circular economy principles without repeating the work of others.
Get involved: We are searching the built environment for initiatives on circular economy to add to our actor and resource map. If you have worked on, or know of, any initiatives, then please share by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
