Materials and the circular economy
The built environment industry is a wasteful consumer of natural resources and largely continues to be designed around the linear ‘take, make, dispose’ model, in which materials are sourced, used and then disposed of as waste.

Join Arup senior engineer and materials expert Emily Walport for a lively webinar exploring the opportunities and challenges of designing with holistic sustainability in mind.
