The construction industry accounts for approximately 60 per cent of UK material use and a third of all waste.
By maximising total material resource efficiency and moving beyond the 3R’s of reduce, reuse and recycle, introducing sustainable materials and the concept of a circular economy in construction is certainly achievable.
Construction News and Westgate held a webinar on 3 February 11am to discuss perspectives from across the industry and dig deeper into the sustainability of construction products.
The experts discussed topics including:
- Exploring circular business models to achieve waste reduction, cost effectiveness and sustainability goals
- Reviewing the business case for procuring reused or recycled construction components
- The need for contractors to look beyond the greenwashing of construction products when choosing sustainable solutions
