Every single day, the UK Construction industry produces enough waste to fill Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Moving towards a circular economy in construction requires whole system change, involving clients, designers, contractors and resource management companies. 

Grounded in the hard reality of commercial delivery of construction, digital solutions and new standards will need to be adopted.  

Using the Construction Waste Portal for performance and resource management in construction projects, SCAPE has set out an ambition to reduce construction waste intensity through its Regional Construction Framework by 50% by 2026. Join our panellists to find out:

  • Why cutting waste is the no regret carbon reduction action that every project should take
  • How the Construction Waste Portal enables big data obtained from 1000s of completed projects, to transform perspectives and priorities around waste in construction
  • How new performance metrics in projects are changing the game
  • How the collaborative PAS 402 standard is at the heart of this change
  • Why resource management organisations should be included when we talk about early supplier involvement
