A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in sustainable buildings: The Circular Building Toolkit free webinar on October 5.
Developed by Arup and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, this toolkit brings together strategies, case studies and tools for designing more circular buildings, meaning reduced waste and carbon for a healthier planet and healthier people.
In the Circular Building Toolkit, the principles of the circular economy have been translated into a prioritised set of strategies and actions relevant for real estate projects. It has been designed aligned with international policies. The framework is based on relevant international best practices and policies such as: EU Taxonomy and EU Level(s).
The strategies are also aligned with circular economy recommendations from the World Green Building Council as well as National Green Building Councils. The toolkit focuses on creating a circular toolkit for your project focusing on topics such as; build nothing, build for long term value, design for longevity, design for adaptability, design for disassembly, refuse unnecessary components, increase material efficiency, reduce the use of virgin materials, reduce the use of carbon intensive materials and design out hazardous/ polluting materials.
Conor will bring us through why the tool was developed and how designers can utilise the tool in this webinar.
