Advancing Circular Construction

The case studies presented by UK’s Business in the Community showcase the possibility of achieving carbon reduction and waste minimization targets using procurement. The Facilities & Building Management sector is a large contributor to landfill waste and carbon emissions. Using circular procurement creates opportunities for the sector to revolutionize standard building practices. Some examples reference the creation of a socially inclusive and productive office space, as well as using carbon sequestering material sources such as hemp.
