Dr Richard Swannell, technical lead, WRAP, and Martyn Kenny, sustainability director, Lafarge Tarmac, will join NCE’s Mark Hansford to discuss how to make material decisions based on whole-life performance
Resource efficiency and the transition to a circular economy are rightly moving up the political agenda as the world says goodbye to the era of cheap oil and materials.
There are clear environmental and financial benefits to be gained by keeping resources in use for as long as possible, but embedding a culture of resource efficiency calls for the industry to have a greater understanding of the importance of making material decisions based on whole-life performance.
NCE will host a webinar to discuss these issues at 2pm on 25th November. During this live video Q&A, Mark Hansford, editor of NCE, will be joined by Greg Chant-Hall, head of sustainability, Skanska; Martyn Kenny, sustainability director, Lafarge Tarmac; Dr Richard Swannell, technical lead WRAP, to discuss:
- How the civil engineering sector can embrace the circular economy and what the barriers are to this culture change
- The incentives that would encourage the industry to engage with circular thinking
- The good practice examples the industry should draw upon
- How whole-life factors should be considered when choosing materials
