Circularity Accelerator

WorldGBC Circularity Accelerator on kansainvälinen ohjelma, jonka tavoitteena on luonnonvarojen kestävä, resurssitehokas, jätteetön käyttö ja luonnon monimuotoisuutta tukeva, elvyttävä rakennettu ympäristö. Ohjelma kokoaa yhteen yli 70 kansallista Green Building Councilia ja Green Building Council Finland toimii ohjelman ohjausryhmässä.

WorldGBC Circularity Accelerator

To support the ambitions of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement, the programme convenes a network of over 70 Green Building Councils and their 36,000 members to work towards WorldGBC’s circularity and resource efficiency goals:

  • 2030 goal: The sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources within the built environment, achieving zero waste to landfill targets and working towards a built environment with net zero whole life resource depletion.
  • 2050 goal: A built environment with net zero whole life resource depletion, working towards the restoration of resources and natural systems within a thriving circular economy.

In order to facilitate cross-sector collaboration, WorldGBC and partners will lead on the creation and distribution of technical knowledge on the circular economy, including developing training for GBC members and the wider industry, and supporting the use of rating tools alongside advocating for regulatory strengthening. This work will be initiated through a flagship ‘State of the Market’ report in Q4 2022.
