Did you know that 37.5% of total waste generated in the EU comes from construction and demolition? And that that amount is predicted to increase by 70% compared to current levels by 2050?
It is difficult to measure what the construction industry ecosystem is doing to address this problem and capture the value of these materials. To reap the full benefits of a circular economy, different circular economy approaches should be applied by different stakeholders across the value chain. However, it is unclear how far this is already being done.
A new ongoing study by Deloitte aims to boost the application and measurement of circular approaches in the construction industry ecosystem across Europe. Final output is expected by May 2023 and a virtual workshop will be held on 23 March on real case studies illustrating the application of circular approaches by stakeholders within the construction industry ecosystem.
