Arup – First steps towards a circular built environment
November 14, 2018
Arup worked with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to examine how the principles of circular economy can be translated into everyday built environment practices.
In the first publication to come out of this collaboration, they identify the stakeholders best placed to take the first steps towards achieving a circular economy in the built environment sector, and suggest actions to kickstart the transition.
Arup analysed over 110 case studies with some element of circular economy thinking, and, working with 3XN Architects and GXN Innovation, spoke to over 100 built environment stakeholders across five cities in Europe. A combined analysis identified the barriers, opportunities and enablers to adoption of circular economy while highlighting the key stakeholders and what their first steps might be.
