Conspark offers calculation tool for circularity in construction

Zurich – Conspark offers a calculation tool for circularity in construction. The tool is intended to promote sustainability and the circular economy in the industry.

Conspark, a Zurich-based consultancy for sustainable construction, has developed a new calculation tool for circularity in construction. According to a press release, the tool can be downloaded free of charge from the company's website. The tool allows users to calculate the circularity of their construction projects. For this purpose, the information from the environmental product declaration must be entered under the appropriate headings. The tool then calculates the circulation for the manufacturing phase and the end of the product's life, according to the press release.

Buildings account for 50 percent of energy consumption and 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. They also consume a large proportion of primary raw materials and water. The goal of a functioning circular economy can therefore make a significant contribution to decarbonization and sustainability in the construction industry.

"With our calculation tool, users have the opportunity to carry out an initial analysis of their products in terms of their recyclability in line with our motto: measurement, transparency, credibility. The results help to identify potential for improvement," Florian Robineck, Managing Director and founder of conspark, is quoted as saying in the press release. ce/ww
