This webinar in the Sustainable Infrastructure: Putting Principle into Practice series explores Principle #5: Resource Efficiency and Circularity from UNEP's International Good Practice Principles for Sustainable Infrastructure.

Given that this session occurs in the middle of the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow, we will have a special focus on the relationship of resource efficiency and circularity to climate change. In the technical presentation, Heleni Pantelidou (ARUP) introduces PAS2080, a tool for managing (not just measuring) whole life carbon in infrastructure. We then have a case presentation by Kevin Hsu (Ministry of National Development of Singapore) on circularity and climate resilience in Singapore green buildings. As always, the session includes interactive activities such as polling, breakout sessions, and Q&As to allow an exchange with the presenters and your colleagues.
