The One Click LCA Building Circularity software makes it possible to design buildings using more circular criteria. The software tracks, quantifies and optimises both the circularity of materials sourced and used and end-of-life circularity.
The Navigation Tool is designed to explain the different steps in the plastic recycling process, from collection through sorting to reuse.
It gives information on the TRANSFORM-CE project’s findings, shares links to project reports and publications, gives the contact details of the project’s partners for questions or collaboration, explains IEM and AM, and suggests uses for recycled plastics.
This updated playbook by Nordic Innovation, Accenture and Sitra is a guide to circular business models. It is tailored to companies in the Nordic manufacturing industries and describes the key enablers to fully transform and become a circular business.
65% of electrical and electronic appliances put on the market must be collected after use when it turns into Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). One key step in achieving that 65% is to map e-waste streams, reliably and at every stage. The BeWeee tool is designed to help companies in Belgium do so.
The Circular Buildings Toolkit will help designers and planners create a better future in the built environment sector. Arup and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation launched the toolkit in a bid to bring a circular economy for buildings into the mainstream, and future-proof assets in the face of a rapidly changing policy landscape.
Reducing the negative environmental impact caused by building processes and materials is an important element of circular construction. Sustainable construction applies to both public spaces (as it pertains to civil and hydraulic engineering) and the built environment (the construction of residential and non-residential buildings).
Circular design is gaining momentum as regards creating both a sustainable built environment and public spaces. Circular design makes buildings more adaptable and facilitates the high-value reuse of a structure’s materials once they have reached the end of their life. This toolbox article summarises the circular design of buildings in eight core principles.
Between September 2021 and March 2022, the Circular Economy - Sustainable Competences for Youth project team conducted an online survey, reaching more than 200 young people aged 18-30 across Europe. These findings fed into data used to prepare recommendations advocating better inclusion and opportunities for young people regarding the transition towards a circular economy.
UNECE and UN/CEFACT, together with key industry stakeholders, have launched a project for an international framework initiative to enhance transparency and traceability for sustainable and circular value chains in the garment and footwear industry.
Reducing your value chain’s emissions is a key factor in combating climate change, transitioning to a circular economy and ensuring that your business is competitive and complies with the law. This guide by Normative sets out six building blocks to measure and reduce carbon emissions from your value chain, a prerequisite for adopting circular business model principles.
