Build UP, the European portal for energy efficiency and renewable energy in buildings, is hosting a series of six webinars organised by CircularB Action. The second webinar, to take place on 14 May at 11:00 – 12:20 CEST, will focus on Policy Shapers and Regulators. It will shed light on the policies, regulations and initiatives introduced by the OECD, the EU and local authorities to promote circularity in construction.

Presentation 1

The first presentation will provide an overview of the OECD Southeast Europe Regional Programme’s projects promoting circular economy initiatives. It will focus on ‘Supporting Green Transition through Circular Economy in the Western Balkans’, a project co-funded by the EU, which offers support for designing and implementing circular roadmaps. It will also delve into the main findings of the circular economy roadmaps developed for Albania and North Macedonia, highlighting priority areas and related measures. Since the construction sector has been identified as a priority in North Macedonia’s roadmap, this presentation will outline the main measures proposed for this sector.

Presentation 2

The transition pathway for construction will be presented next, outlining the requirements and steps needed to create a resilient, competitive, sustainable and technologically advanced construction industry.

This presentation will touch upon the initiatives being implemented to manage construction and demolition waste, which constitutes more than a third of the waste generated in the EU. Cities are becoming more aware of the need to promote a construction sector that is both sustainable and circular. Ever more cities and local authorities around the world are taking ambitious action to enable a circular built environment, adopting increasingly stringent policies and fostering collaboration between industry, public organisations and academia.

Presentation 3

The last presentation will give an overview of the London case study: successes, challenges and future opportunities.
