A short introduction.
You have probably heard of a circular economy. Because let's face it: the way we build today is not sustainable. Even worse, It is disastrous. The construction sector accounts for about 50% of the material consumption, is responsible for 35% of the total waste generation, and consumes about 40% of the energy.
As a result, various building materials are becoming scarce and will soon be unavailable, not to mention landfills and incineration and their harmful consequences.
Now, the good news is: we can do something about it! Our actions can have a positive impact on the environment and the people living in it.
This platform offers a set of actions you can take during the design process to proceed towards a circular economy, an economy where the economic activity is decoupled from the consumption of finite resources.
