We wholly support the concepts and principals of using data and digital transformation to help transition to a circular economy in the built environment.
"Digitalisation can help us address the scale and
complexity of interconnected systems. Data
and digital solutions support us in making better
decisions faster. Federated solutions, such as
ecosystems of connected digital twins, can help us
to understand whole systems better and intervene
To achieve this, we must manage data more
consistently and facilitate secure information flows
across organisational and sector boundaries. By
doing so, we will be able to provide the relevant
information about materials, products, assets
and systems in a way that is useful to others.
This kind of ‘data infrastructure’, which promotes
interoperability, is crucial for managing stocks and
flows in the built environment, including existing
buildings and infrastructure. As a result, it is an
essential enabler of a wider circular economy."
