Weathertex will be presenting a formal CPD talk on the Circularity in The Built Environment, a Cradle-to-Cradle Approach with the follow topics.

Circularity in the Built Environment

Globally, construction is responsible for an estimated one third of the world’s overall waste, and up to 40% of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions. If we want to reduce the quantity of waste and emissions generated during the construction process, we need to take a closer look at the life cycle of the products we build with. It is becoming clearer that a transition to a circular economy is necessary to avert environmental disaster and mitigate the impact of climate change. The building and construction industry is crucial to this shift.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the concept of circularity in design and construction
  • Identify and explain the three key principles of circularity
  • Define a ‘Circularity Score’ and identify high performing products
  • Know how to apply this new knowledge to your projects
