Interested in Circular Economy applications to the built environment and construction sector? Bookings are now open for the WRAP's workshops

Interested in Circular Economy applications to the built environment and construction sector? Bookings are now open for the WRAP's workshops on “the business benefits of going circular – what does it mean for companies in the built environment sector?”
 
Discover the business benefits of going circular – what does it mean for companies in the built environment sector?
Join one of the 3 workshops to explore the competitive advantage you can gain for your built environment business by moving away from the traditional make-buy-sell model to a more circular alternative.
  • 89%* of clients believe that companies will gain a competitive advantage if they adopt a circular approach (one that retains longer-term interest in products and buildings)
  • Trail blazing companies are already adopting and benefitting from this new way of doing business
 
These half day interactive workshops will help you start your journey towards a more circular way of doing business:
  • hear experiences from companies in the built environment and other sectors
  • consider how applying some of the concepts could work in reality for your business
  • find out about tools and resources available to support you – for example, innovations in this area are to be supported by up to £6m of funding from Innovate UK. We will have a guest speaker on-hand to present and take questions about this funding
 
*taken from a UKCG survey (2014) on views on the Circular Economy concept in construction
