Side A

Circular economy and construction

Just like good old vinyl records, our newsletters now have two sides: the A-Side provides a choice of articles revolving around a central theme that is changing the way we design, build and operate cities and infrastructure, and the B-Side (on your inbox in a fortnight!) provides suggestions for further reading on the same topic.

Can the circular economy help construction deliver on its promises to reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions? Discover the best practices in the sector and the innovative stakeholders supporting the sector.



The circular economy of the construction industry (no going round in circles)

As a key stage in the ecological transition, the circular economy aims to put an end to traditional linear production that extracts, transforms and then throws away. It seems like an ambitious promise on paper, but one where results still seem difficult to measure.



Four jobs of the future for circular lands and cities

We must invest in new skills if we want to develop the circular economy. Mass reskilling is required, especially in the construction industry.



Urban metabolism and circular economy challenges on a city-wide scale

The circular economy is the focus of debate surrounding sustainable construction. When applied on a local level across a city or region, its various concepts are grouped under the umbrella term of urban metabolism.
