Resource efficiency in the domestic construction industry

Best practices in circular economy and eco-innovation

Date: 13 April 2018 (Friday) 9.30 –13.45

Venue: HUNGEXPO Pavilion ‘A’, Gallery 2 (1101 Budapest, Albertirsai út 10., Hungary)

Topic of the conference:

Growing prosperity leads to the extraction and use of more resources and to the production of more waste. The EU is committed to implement the principles of the waste hierarchy, which implies the prevention of waste, its reuse and recycling where it is not prevented, and its energy recovery as sub-optimal option. This calls for eco-innovative solutions and resource-efficient products, processes and services, and their uptake which will be facilitated by new sustainable lifestyles and consumption behaviour. At the first event of this series we investigate through several topical examples how resource efficiency can be fostered in the extended construction sector in Hungary.
