We are glad to invite you to the session ‘The potential of circularity in district renovation’ that will be held on 6 March 2024 at ECTP Conference.

The transition to a more circular built environment in Europe is gathering pace. This is partly thanks to decarbonisation objectives set up by the EU through their Fitfor55 legislative package to bring down CO² emissions down by at least 55% by 2030. This requires a new systemic approach to development from better use of existing buildings to improving local supply chains so that we can reduce the carbon footprint, not only in the use-phase homes, but also those linked to construction activities. However, circularity is still far from being mainstreamed in the construction sector due to several reasons such as uncertainty about the availability of materials and suppliers, lack of knowledge of cost-effective technical solutions and processes, and the need for more lighthouse projects. This session aims to unravel how circular principles are used in district-level renovation projects: what are the challenges, the good practices, and the tools available to upscale pilot projects (including ARV’s).

Organised by ARV partner Housing Europe, the session will be on 6 March from 11:30 to 13:00 CET at the Thon Hotel Bristol Stephanie, Av. Louise 91, 1050 BRUSSELS.
