Making the Business Case for Advancing a Low-carbon, Circular Built Environment
Approximately half of all extracted resources globally are used for the built environment, with 11% of global greenhouse gas emissions being attributed to the embodied carbon found in construction materials. By 2025, it is expected that 2.2 billion tonnes of construction waste will be generated around the world (nearly double 2018 levels).
How can we make the business case to advance the circular built environment? What are the policy, investment, and market levers that can support the transition? How do these efforts align with goals for net zero while creating new economic and employment opportunities? Join us for this compelling 90-minute session to explore answers to the questions above.
This event is an Accelerator Session at the World Circular Economy Forum 2021.
