UKGBC circular economy pack promotes reuse by Crown
The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) has published an ‘implementation pack’ to help those delivering built environment projects to apply circular economy principles. The pack focuses on two key areas – reuse and products as a service – and features Crown Workspace, explaining how we can help businesses reuse their furniture, IT and electrical equipment.
With 60% of total waste in the UK generated from construction, demolition and excavation, the pack explains the opportunities for the built environment to embrace the circular economy. The UKGBC outlines the many benefits of reuse including reduced procurement costs, embodied carbon and landfill costs as well as the provision of greater social value.
At Crown Workspace, we help our clients achieve the best social, environmental and financial outcomes and move towards a more circular office approach to the management and clearance of furniture, IT and electrical equipment. Our comprehensive range of sustainable workplace solutions are designed around the waste hierarchy and include audit, storage, remanufacturing, resale and donation.
UKGBC is a charity focused on applying sustainability to the built environment with over 400 members from designers, developers, suppliers and occupiers.
