Timber and the Circular Economy CPD Webinar Friday 19th May 1-2pm


Timber has increasing appeal for architects, designers and those who specify materials for construction projects. Following on from our earlier Responsible Timber Sourcing CPD, specifiers can now learn more about how responsibly sourced timber fits within the Circular Economy agenda, through our fully accredited Timber and the Circular Economy CPD course.

The CPD is delivered as an hour-long webinar and the next one will be held on Friday 19th May at 1pm. A CPD certificate of attendance will be awarded to all participants.

Why You Need to Know about Timber and the Circular Economy

While timber is the ultimate renewable material, we need to ensure we can continue to meet future demand by making the very best use of this valuable resource. Ensuring timber products and buildings last for their required design life, and that they can be reused or remanufactured at the end of use, are key circular economy solutions.

Governments and NGOs are also promoting the need to recycle materials as part of the solution to meeting net-zero carbon construction targets. By ensuring timber products meet the circular economy agenda, we can continue to incorporate these renewable, low-carbon materials into the buildings of the future and help increase the overall carbon storage in buildings.

What you will learn from this webinar:

  • The background to the Circular Economy
  • Where timber fits within the Circular Economy
  • Why responsible timber sourcing is important to meet Circular Economy goals
  • How you can incorporate Circular Economy timber products into your designs
  • What Circular Economy business models you could consider

The webinar will be presented by Charlie Law of Sustainable Construction Solutionswho has over 30 years’ experience in the construction sector with extensive industry knowledge, having worked for BAM, Kier and Lendlease.  He is also Head of Construction & ESG at The Pallet LOOP and Sustainability Director at Timber Development UK.
