Event: The Circular Economy, Practical Examples from the Built Environment, Hong Kong 8 June 2017

The built environment is responsible for 90% of carbon emissions in Hong Kong and of the 3 landfills we have, construction waste accounts for in excess of 25% of the total waste intake. As we are rapidly running out of landfill and reclamation space, our industry has a responsibility to take a lead by reducing both the amount of waste produced, and by reducing the impact of the materials we use.

In the context of One Planet Living, the circular economy concept is one that we must adopt rapidly to ensure we protect and enhance the natural resources that remain. This challenges the traditional linear ‘extract, make, use and dispose’ concept, to one that is about maintaining goods and services at their ‘highest value’, then recovering and regenerating products.

Cundall has partnered with the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, to bring to you some practical case studies from around the world, which we hope will provide ideas and inspiration to adopt this new way of thinking into our design and construction models, saving money, natural resources and time.
