In the built environment, circular economy will unlock vast opportunities for businesses to broaden their value creation while solving the major climate challenges of our time.

In this open online session, we will hear how Finland, the Netherlands and Estonia are pursuing circular economy in the built environment. The presentations will describe current national development initiatives, identify key milestones along the way and assess how the progress towards circularity is connected to the digitalisation of the industry.


This event looks to answer the following questions:


  • What is the role of digital solutions in achieving the national roadmaps and goals?
  • What challenges are there in regards to availability and usability of data?
  • How can companies support the national governments and vice versa?
