Reducing Plastics in Construction Summit

Date: Tuesday 16th July 2024   Time: 14:00-16:00   Location: Online (Zoom)

Plastic plays a significant role in the construction sector, with studies indicating that the UK generates 55,000 tonnes of plastic waste from construction annually, of which less than half is recycled. This Plastic Free July, delve into the latest findings, initiatives, and strategies aimed at minimising, reusing, and recycling plastics within the industry. Additionally, we’ll gain insights from experts investigating the impact of this plastic on our health, well-being, and environment. Our speakers will underscore the urgency for action and the summit will provide actionable solutions and opportunities to begin stemming the plastic tide.

We’re thrilled to announce the return of ASBP’s Innovation Pitch! This competition for innovators, startups, and manufacturers who are introducing new product lines or services, particularly those offering alternatives to traditional plastic building materials and packaging. Whether in the early stages of development, market-ready, or recently launched, we welcome a spectrum of innovations. At the Plastics Summit, finalists will showcase their ideas, and attendees will have the opportunity to vote for the ultimate winner!

Launched in April 2019, the ASBP Reducing Plastics in Construction Group is a cross-sector membership group, bringing together stakeholders from across the construction value chain to learn collaboratively and address plastics in construction issues, both in products and packaging.
