Circular and digital renewal of central Europe construction and building sector
The construction industry heavily contributes to resource consumption, waste generation, and greenhouse gas emissions. The adoption of circular and digital practices can help reduce the environmental impact of the sector. The ReBuilt project promotes these approaches in an education programme and deploys new solutions. The partners also design a transnational circular and digital construction strategy that builds on green labelling, end-of-waste criteria, and green public procurement.

The construction industry is very important to the EU economy. The sector provides 18 million direct jobs and contributes to about 9% of the EU's GDP. It also creates new jobs, drives economic growth, and provides solutions for social, climate, and energy challenges.
CONCRETE IS A STRATEGIC MATERIAL FOR SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION
Due to its mechanical properties, concrete is not an easily replaceable material in construction. It is resistant to water and extreme weather conditions, non-combustible and durable. It is also widely available. The natural resources needed to produce it are available locally, which also reduces the potential environmental impact of ...
A material passport is a digital document listing all the materials that are included in a product or construction during its life cycle in order to facilitate strategizing circularity decisions in supply chain management. Passports generally consists of a set of data describing defined characteristics of materials in products, ...
CIRCULAR BUILDINGS AND INFRASTRUCTURE
The built environment has a significant impact on a multitude of sectors, on local jobs and on the quality of life. The construction sector accounts for 50% of materials extracted in Europe and is responsible for more than 35% of Europe's waste.
