Before giving the floor to actors in our ecosystem who integrate use value into the way projects and actions are thought, let’s come back to this notion together.

The latest trends in circular real estate

The concept of circular economy is becoming increasingly important in the construction sector. Opposing the classic linear economy model (extract, produce, consume, throw away), this concept is based on seven main pillars: ecodesign (minimizing environmental impacts from the development of a product), industrial ecology (organization that optimizes the use of resources), economy of functionality, reuse, repair, reuse and finally recycling. Real estate, from design to construction, and operation to deconstruction, is gradually adopting these new sustainable schemes to put the circular economy at the heart of its model.
