We are presenting at WasteBuild

WasteBuild is an event showcasing the most innovative projects towards a circular built environment

WasteBuild is the first and only international event dedicated to accelerating the transition towards a circular built environment. During this event, architects, engineers, developers and policymakers will exchange circular initiatives and solutions for sustainable buildings, share best practice, and explore the commercial benefits of the circular economy. WasteBuild will also highlight the need for the construction industry to take collective action to tackle the climate emergency, by moving towards circular business models.

“For countries such as the Netherlands and the UK to achieve the circular-economy targets needed to reduce carbon emissions, a major shift in the way we resource construction projects is needed now,” said Frazer Stokes, event director of WasteBuild.

The transition towards circularity will not be driven by technology. Our societal and economic system needs to change fundamentally, towards a focus on long-term prosperity rather than short-term profits. This needs to be facilitated by commercial, economic and regulatory factors. WasteBuild examines all these angles, highlighting the need for systematic change. Moreover, it offers stakeholders commercially viable solutions and strategies to implement circular initiatives.

The event includes a free-to-attend exhibition, in which architects, engineers, designers and technologists will present circular solutions, with sponsors and exhibitors including Forbo, Kloeckners, ByFusion, Interface, SUPERLOCAL, Peikko and Ecor. Besides that, a paid conference will explore opportunities and challenges for using “waste” as a resource.

We are thrilled to be part of this amazing event! Would you like to come explore, network and be inspired? And meet us?
