Register now for The Apollo Protocol: The Circularity Hack – a must-attend if you want to explore how a circular economy can be genuinely developed between the built environment, construction and manufacturing sectors.

By 2018, the UK commercial and industrial sectors combined were producing 43.9 million tonnes of waste a year, and in the same year, the UK generated 67.8 million tonnes of non-hazardous construction and demolition waste. 

Although the concept of a circular economy is well established, it is not clear how to enable circularity between adjacent industrial sectors. The built environment is a potentially exploitable material resource for manufacturing, yet it is presently a major source of landfill. Using construction waste as an input to the manufacturing materials supply chain, for example, would enable the maintenance and reuse of assets. But how is this possible? 

Sustainability is a global challenge requiring cross- sectoral collaboration to close waste, by-product and end-of-life feedback loops. A protocol for integrated digital twins would drive faster decarbonisation for adjacent sectors through a common exchange mechanism for relevant data. This would decouple unsustainable resource consumption from economic growth, creating new value in a circular system. 

At this interactive event we will identify and explore the benefits to both manufacturing and built environment sectors of sharing data to reduce waste and enable a genuine circular economy. We shall begin to develop a framework for change.

We are seeking a diverse audience from across the manufacturing and built environment sectors, including but not limited to:

  • Technical or information managers/head of digital who provide products into the built environment field from which they have data requirements.
  • Sustainability managers in manufacturing who are responsible for assessing the carbon impact of products and/or who have cross sector data needs.
  • Environmental assessment framework professionals with use cases for cross sector digital needs.
  • CIOs or heads of information responsible for information management or data security.
  • Owners and operators of public sector built environment programmes, including infrastructure, government buildings, hospitals, schools, housing.
  • Property managers in built assets in the private sector, including estate management professionals.
  • Client-side Information managers and consultants working in the built environment.

If this sounds like you, sign up for this event to find out more.
