International organisations are embracing the promise of a circular economy – a fundamentally different approach to the organisation of our economic system – and its potential for the construction industry. Innovation is taking place throughout the construction and real estate sectors, from digitisation; industrialisation; greater use of robots and 3D printing; to sustainability improvements.
Glasgow has many major infrastructure projects in the pipeline, all of which provide a major opportunity to embed circular thinking in the construction sector and supporting finance sector. Now is a major opportunity to influence these projects at the earliest possible stage.
With inspiration and insights from the Circle Economy Built Environment report / Park 2020 / ABN Ambro Circular pavilion, Circular Glasgow sees a significant opportunity to influence the impact of the cities built environment. The Construction sector is also a major focus target of the Scottish Government’s ‘Making Things Last’ strategy.
