BioRegional has worked to push reuse of construction materials since initiating BedZED, the UK’s largest low carbon community. With low carbon industry high on the agenda, BioRegional commissioned Salvo Llp to write Pushing reuse. The hope is that the Government will seize this opportunity to drive investment and enterprise in this neglected green market.
Pushing reuse, towards a low-carbon construction industry, written by Thornotn Kay of Salvo is currently available to download (see link below). The key findings were; reuse is better than recycling, reuse in construction has declined in the past 10 years, policy is not driving reuse, simple policy interventions are available.
