A huge part of the Irish Waste Management Conference every year is dealing with waste from the built environment and C&D waste. As such we are delighted to announce an expert Circular Economy & Sustainability Consultant will be taking to the stage on March 10th. Janet Lynch is the Circular Economy & Sustainability Consultant with Arup and will be giving a presentation on;
The built environment requires vast amounts of resources. The sector has been identified by the European Union as a key value chain for circularity, requiring urgent, comprehensive and coordinated action. Janet will set out how all stakeholders in the built environment in Ireland can contribute to the transition from a linear to a circular economy. She will set out how circular strategies can drive down carbon associated with built assets, keep assets in use at their highest value and promote regenerative design. Topics will include:
• The Transport Infrastructure Ireland Circular Economy Plan
• The Arup & Ellen MacArthur Foundation Circular Building Design Toolkit
• The EU Sustainability Taxonomy
• A range of exemplar Circular Economy in the Built Environment Projects
This is a very important presentation that all construction, engineering, transport and consultancy firms need to hear.
