EVENT: Materials Passports and the Circular Economy – CIRCuIT networking event
May 5, 2022
5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The City Centre, 80 Basinghall Street, London, EC2V 5AG
Join us for an evening of discussions and networking at The City Centre, where we will hear from guest speakers on the role materials passports can play in supporting a circular and regenerative city.
Current construction and demolition practices are not circular, and accounts for around one-third of global material consumption and waste. By treating buildings and infrastructure as ‘materials banks’ and leveraging them as sources of valuable, high quality materials, that can be easily dismantled, recovered, and reused, we can better support a circular construction industry. Materials passports can help enable this by documenting data of materials used in a product or construction, increasing the visibility of materials as an added value and confidence for reuse.

Who should attend
Any built environment stakeholder interested in circular construction, including but not limited to: investors, developers, local authorities, designers, advisory services, contractors, and product manufacturers.
Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities (CIRCuIT) is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project bringing together 31 ambitious partners across the entire built environment chain in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Helsinki Region and Greater London. This four-year project aims to bridge the implementation gap between theory, practice and policy and showcase how circular construction approaches can be scaled and replicated across the UK and Europe, to support the creation of regenerative cities.
Please note, we may need to limit attendees based on venue capacity
