New framework for circular buildings


The Dutch Green Building Council (DGBC), Metabolic, SGS Search and Circle Economy researched how circularity can be incorporated in an urban environment, making use of BREEAM-NL. The study was supported by the Redevco Foundation. Indicators that can be included in BREEAM certificates to better evaluate circular buildings were researched and this resulted in a new framework and indicators which can be included in BREEAM-NL certificates.The frameworks are detailed in the report ‘A Framework for Circular Buildings: Indicators for possible inclusion in BREEAM’.

More information about the framework is available here.
