Circular infrastructure: the road towards a sustainable future
The availability of a quality infrastructure system – networks of roads, railways, bridges and waterways – is a prerequisite for all economic activity to flourish and is equally essential for people’s health, wellbeing and safety. The value infrastructure creates in our lives is undisputable but so is the adverse environmental impact it has on our planet. To mitigate the long-term catastrophic effects of depleting material resources and climate change, a circular economy for infrastructure is essential. Our publication “Circular Infrastructure: the road towards a sustainable future” aims to bring just that into the limelight to inspire action by public actors and practitioners.
