Material transition is key to meet climate neutral and circular goals by 2030. ”Edwin ThieSenior Bridge Engineer
A range of Arup circular economy experts will share their thinking to help the built environment transition towards circular design solutions.

Arup’s commitment to the circular economy was formalised in 2016, when we became knowledge partners of theEllen MacArthur Foundation,促进对其tion of circular economy principles.
Some of our recent reports on circularity include our thinking on how tounlock value in the property market, supportingcontractors to include circular approaches in infrastructure work以及策略unlock opportunities for all players across the value chain.
