Event description

Description

Circular Economy responds to the need to create less waste and manage the limited resources we have on our planet in a more efficient way. Principles include replacing the end-of-life concept with restoration, a shift towards the use of renewable energy, the elimination of toxic chemicals and the overall aim of eliminating waste.

As cities face increasing challenges due to the scarcity of resources and dependence on raw materials, while carbon emissions reduction targets are still to be met, is a shift towards a circular economy going to solve both problems? And what does it mean in practice to move away from a traditional linear 'take, make, and waste' economy towards a circular model?

With ambitious targets to make London zero carbon by 2050, and have zero-waste to be sent to landfill by 2026, how is the built environment community responding to the challenge? Do we have the tools, technology, knowledge and leadership to progress and implement circular economy principles in the way we design our buildings, places and city as a whole?

This NLA conference discusses how the built environment sector is applying and embedding circular economy principles and how London is going to become a zero-waste and zero-carbon city.
