Geneva, 4 December 2021 – Today, the Circular Economy program of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) in collaboration with the Built Environment launches Episode VI of Circular Views – the podcast series to learn about the circular economy.

As the momentum around the circular economy continues to grow, more and more companies become interested in how they can start their journey. Embracing a circular and regenerative approach in the built environment will be key to enable a just transition to a low-carbon economy and limit biodiversity loss.

We have recently published a new report that articulates the business case of pursuing circularity in the built environment consisting of the economic value alongside a broader value case, including environmental and social factors. It brings together qualitative and quantitative research identifying how to derive value and who could capture that value.

For the sixth episode of Circular Views podcast, we invited Anna Palmér from Skanska and Johanna Pirinen from Stora Enso, who both contributed to the report to discuss the key enablers and solutions to building circular.
