A circular future for the European construction sector: light commercial and residential buildings

November 21, 2022

This publication, developed in collaboration with Bain & Company, presents circular trends and strategies for the European construction sector, enabling it to overcome supply chain challenges, decarbonise faster and stay competitive. 

The paper suggests five key circular economy strategies that can help the construction sector journey towards net-zero—boosting the industry’s circularity to 50% and cutting production-related greenhouse gas emissions by around 52%. It argues that there is significant future earning potential for businesses in low-carbon and circular materials, enabling the construction industry to respond to rising consumer demand, reach climate goals and navigate material disruption.
