Circular Economy

Over the next 2 years we will be running a series of live experiments, testing the application of circular principles on real estate assets and construction projects. Our aim is to facilitate collaborative approaches to overcome common obstacles and to share these findings with the wider membership and industry.

Our Vision is of a built environment at the heart of a circular economy – where waste is eliminated and materials retain value long after their original use. We are looking for visionary, courageous, and bold-thinking organisations to join us on this experiential learning journey towards a more circular built environment.

Over the next two years, we will be running a series of live experiments, testing the application of circular principles on real estate assets and construction projects.

We are holding a webinar on June 12th to launch the Circular Economy Programme. Find out more here.

Our aim is to facilitate collaborative approaches in overcoming common obstacles – you have told us these include:

  • Limited practical action and engagement across the value chain
  • Limited awareness and understanding
  • Lack of business case evidence
  • Multiple building owners over lifetime
  • Product liabilities
  • Business models

Outcomes and deliverables:

  • Report on findings of Circular Economy practices amongst UKGBC Gold Leaf members
  • Improved circular outcomes across a series of real-time projects
  • Practical tips and lessons learnt for widespread consumption and application (visual outputs e.g. video, animation, infographics and comprehensive social media strategy
  • Extensive series of awareness-raising events and educational courses
  • Evidence to inform advocacy asks and policy development
  • Links to UKGBC Innovation Programme and sustainable innovators
