Join our live webinar to find out how civil engineering can embrace the circular economy

WEBINAR | The circular economy

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.
