A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear one that depends on the making, using and disposal of goods. It encourages the optimal use of resources, extracting maximum value, including recovering and regenerating after use. As well as creating new opportunities for growth, a more circular economy can reduce waste, drive greater resource productivity and deliver a more competitive UK economy.
At this breakfast networking event our BAMB partner Gillian Hobbs, BRE, held a presentation of BAMB to develop new ideas and ways of embedding circular economy thinking into the built environment and property sector. Key themes of the event were:
• What is the value of a circular economy for the property sector?
• What do owners and investors need to know (and what supporting guidance & tools are needed) to make more informed choices?
• What are your priorities in understanding & benefiting from circular economy developments in the future?
• How should the property sector share best practices, lessons learnt and new understanding relating to more circular thinking?
