  2. 2. Circular Economy “If the circular economy was adopted by the EU, savings within a range of between €300 – €560 billion could be realised by 2035” Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2012 ”A well known topic but poorly defined” ”What does it mean for us in real estate & construction?” ”If the circular economy is coming …… - where do I start if I am in real estate & construction?”
  3. 3. Hiedanranta, Tampere 25 000 residents Responsible for energy & construction stage circular economy
