    Buildings count for almost 40% of total EU greenhouse gas emissions and are among the biggest consumers of energy and natural resources as well as producers of waste.

    In order to meet the 2050 EU’s climate neutrality objective, the whole construction sector needs to transit from a linear to a circular economy model.

    The principles of the circular economy model aim to decouple economic growth from resource and energy use. For the buildings/construction sector this means, inter alia, prioritising renewable and recycled materials in the construction process and extending the building’s useful life.

    The transition to a more circular construction and material management will have a positive impact on the environment as well as on resource efficiency and thus it can contribute to reducing the building´s eco-footprint.

    This webinar gave an insight into the current and up-coming European regulatory framework for circular economy with relevance for the building sector.

    New business models were presented to put circular economy in the construction sector into practice and gain knowledge about a dedicated certification scheme. Also, the webinar reflected on the specific situations in Germany and Poland.

    The event was co-organised by BGK and KfW and it is the third in a series of circular economy webinars offered by the Joint  Initiative on Circular Economy (JICE) that address topics relevant to the circular transition in the EU.  

    Please find further information and the recording of the seminar on the dedicated event page.
