The CU Webinar "Sustainable Construction through Circular Economy under the Green Deal", took place today Wednesday 30 September, from 10:00-11:30, through the online platform ZOOM and had an attendance of more than 175 participants.
As part of the European Green Deal, the Circular Economy Action Plan aims at accelerating and promoting the transition to a circular economy. This second webinar will focus on the contribution of ceramic construction products to circular and sustainable construction and the challenges that lie ahead.
Ceramic construction products – bricks & roof tiles, wall & floor tiles, sanitaryware, expanded clay and clay pipes – already play a considerable role and contribute to this transition, through the durability and sustainability of the products.
The Ceramic Industry has developed numerous solutions to minimize the consumption of raw materials and the waste generated during the production process, as well as to increase the rate of reuse and recycling of its products.
This event was moderated by Ms. Kathryn Sheridan (CEO & Founder, Sustainability Consult) and counted with the presence of the following guest speakers:
- MEP Christian Doleschal, IMCO Committee, European Parliament
- Josefina Lindblom, Policy Officer, DG ENVI, European Commission
- Gitte K. Nielsen, Managing Director, Danish Brick & Roofing Tiles Association
The presentations kindly shared by our guest speakers are now available for download (please consult Documents).
