  • Masterclass Circular Economy Day 4: CE in practice; part 2

    Masterclass Circular Economy Day 4: CE in practice; part 2

    You’ve heard from resource scarcity, the sharing economy, Cradle to Cradle products, leasing models, production on demand, re-valuing waste streams….but you can’t grasp yet what this means for you. Then the Masterclass Circular Economy is for you.

    The Masterclass looks into upcoming circular trends, and business strategies behind them. The Circular Economy – with the basic philosophy of using resources more conscientiously – offers your company several new ecological and business opportunities.  

    All these models play a part within an economy that focuses on sustainable use of materials. The current use of resources places an intolerable high amount of pressure on the planet. Alongside the risk of supplies running out for many European companies: the global demand is rising but production is stagnating. For this reason our resources use and the accompanying production- and consumption patterns need to change. By ingenuity and innovation this turnaround can become an economic opportunity and give you an international competitive advantage.

    During four sessions have a half-day, you will discover what sort of chances the circular economy offers for the future. We will look to the how and what, the changes in policy and industry and which key drivers are important to evolve into a circular economy (or circular business).

  • BAMB Project - Circular Supplier Community Workshops

    BAMB Project - Circular Supplier Community Workshops

    Since 2016 the EU funded BAMB Project, which brings together 16 partners from seven European countries, aims to enable a systemic and circular shift in the building sector. As a preliminary stage for future EU directives, the project proves the opportunities of a digitized construction sector by applying tools like Materials Passports and the potential of Reversible Building Design.

    In various workshops, stakeholder meetings and conferences the challenges, value propositions and business cases of Building Information Modeling and Materials Passports have been elaborated and are now shared with motivated stakeholders in the building sector.

    The Circular Supplier Community Workshops give suppliers and interested actors along the building supply chain the opportunity to gain information about best practices and the advantages of Materials Passports, Circular Buildings & BIM!

     

    Participants: BAMB stakeholders, suppliers of building products and interested parties in the building sector

    Language: English

  • 2018 AIA Conference on Architecture

    2018 AIA Conference on Architecture

    The American Institute of Architects will host its flagship conference June 21-23in New York City. The preeminent event of the U.S. architecture and design community, this conference features three immersive days of workshops, tours, networking functions and an expo hall. This year’s AIA Conference on Architecture theme is “Blueprint for Better Cities,” so it should come as no surprise that a number of Cradle to Cradle Certification holders will be participating.

    Institute sponsor Accsys Group will exhibit its Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold product Accoya® at Expo Hall Booth 765. Accoya® (pictured above) is modified timber in which a process called acetylation, a cutting-edge patented technology, enables it to resist rot, defy the elements and stay strong for decades. Guaranteed for 50 years above ground and 25 years in ground or freshwater, its performance and properties are remarkable. Booth visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the benefits of this C2C certified product, which also contributes to several credits for LEED, and also about many C2C inspired projects such as the office of the Municipality of Venlo, Netherlands. More information on Accoya® is available here.

    Cradle to Cradle Certification holder Komproment will present at "Design for Circularity: Buildings as Material Banks," a pre-conference event hosted by The Danish Cleantech Hub on July 19 from 6:00-9:00 pm at Lower Manhattan HQ. Komproment Partner Niels Heidtmann will take part in this panel discussion and workshop examining how circular building design, solutions and materials can transform industry from its current "throw away" model. Komproment will be represented at the AIA Conference at Booth 3068 in the Expo Hall.

    Webinar: Taking a deep dive into C2C’s approach to defining Material Health

    What does a Cradle to Cradle full certification or Material Health Certificate tell you about the health and safety of a product? And how does that stack up to other labels and rating systems in the ever-evolving ecosystem of options available to identify healthy materials? By participating in this webinar, you’ll be able to recognize the varying degree and quality of information being assessed, reported and disclosed across the industry, in order to make informed materials decisions. This session will also feature an advanced look at the significantly expanded Restricted Substances List proposed for Cradle to Cradle version 4, which is in development and slated for introduction in late 2018.​

  • Seminar ‘Circular building in one day’ for sustainable design professionals - From Molecule to Metropolis

    Seminar ‘Circular building in one day’ for sustainable design professionals - From Molecule to Metropolis

    On Friday, March 16, 2018, C2C Products Innovation Institute, the C2C Bouwgroep and C2C Café will organize a unique seminar for architects, designers, owners, developers and building professionals. Participants are taken into the world of materials and circular building in one day. From Molecule to Metropolis.

    Together step by step Circular building

    This seminar is organized for construction professionals who are curious about what healthy and circular building can bring to their organization. We are looking to engage with progressive companies that have set themselves sustainability/circularity goals, but still have doubts about the strategy and are looking for ways align their values with their operations as soon as possible. For these sustainable design professionals, it is a day full of inspiration, workshops and know-how from various world leaders who want to make visitors aware of the circular values ​​and involve them in the framework and the principles of circular and healthy design. All this in one day and in an exceptional and appropriate location in the CIRCL Pavilion in Amsterdam.

    The importance of Circular building with safe materials

    The Dutch government aims to make the Netherlands the first complete circular economy in the world and aims to achieve a 50% reduction in the use of primary raw materials by 2030. The use of primary building materials must be reduced while building waste must be circular at the same time. The construction sector is now still a raw materials and energy-intensive sector. The Netherlands can be at the forefront of Europe if we can make our construction knowledge and expertise more sustainable and recalibrate on the principles of circular construction with safe materials. When designers and owners actively choose C2C products for circular construction, the foundation is laid for a true circular economy.

    The program

    The program of this day has been set up tightly and efficiently so that, after contributions by, among others,Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Circle Economy, Delta Development, Plantronics, ARUP, C2C ExpoLAB, Arche, BAMB and several Cradle to Cradle certified producers, participants  have enough space to network.

    After this seminar, the visitor will have acquired a wealth of knowledge and a concrete step-by-step plan that is supplemented with valuable connections to quickly and adequately build circular and healthy buildings.

    Register

    The program can be found on: http://circulairbouwenineendag.nl/  (in Dutch)

    The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, the members of the Cradle to Cradle Building Group and the members of the Cradle2Cradle Café warmly invite interested parties to participate in the above event.
