Kickstart Circular Economy

The construction industry accounts for 62% of UK waste and 50% of material use.

The industry must rapidly transition to a circular economy reducing construction waste and primary resource extraction. This will generate new job opportunities: almost 90,000 new UK jobs  were created in the emerging circular economy between 2014-2019. And in turn, this will reduce carbon emissions, environmental degradation and pollution.

2. Establish a national circular economy strategy 

How to financially incentivise the circular economy

3. Provide financial incentives and tax reform to support the circular economy by
