Circular economy guidance for construction clients


Together with its members, the UK Green Building Council has produced a circular economy guidance for construction clients, which provides comprehensive practical guidance to support construction clients who want to ask for circular principles in their project briefs for non-domestic built assets.

The guidance addresses the commercial realities associated with making this practically happen and provides support and evidence to assist clients in setting clear strategies that ensure budget, project timescales and risks are all minimised and mitigated.

This guidance will also be helpful for those in the supply chain looking to support construction clients on their journey towards specifying and practically applying circular economy principles.
