Our mission

The Event for Zero Carbon Construction

WasteBuild Zero, in partnership with MRW, showcases the latest materials, techniques, solutions and innovators that are helping to deliver low carbon and circular construction schemes today. Our aim is to support the transition towards a circular and regenerative built environment and in the process to tackle the climate emergency.

It feels like a long time since our launch event in December 2019 and we are delighted to finally be counting down the weeks until  WasteBuild Zero 22 from 8-9 September once again back in Amsterdam.  

We haven't stood still during the pandemic though and have delivered multiple online events over the past two years and have made much of the content from these events available here.

Register now make sure you are the first to know when full registration goes live and to secure your pass for the only international event dedicated to accelerating the transition towards zero carbon construction.


A unique approach

WasteBuild’s approach is entirely unique. Not only are we the only international in-person and online events portfolio focussed purely on circular and zero carbon solutions for the built environment, but we also live and breath those circular and regenerative values ourselves and support the UN SDG’s to deliver our year-round programme.

We design the in-person WasteBuild Live event with disassembly and reuse in mind and, as you will see from our online event, stream all of our content live to minimise unnecessary travel. Our stand constructions are 100% reusable and we have created zero waste exhibition guidelines for our exhibitors.

Where we have identified items that cannot be effectively recycled and would end up in landfill or the incinerator, we refuse to use them.


A truly innovative event

Our independence from adhering to ‘traditional’ and linear options means we can work with like-minded suppliers and innovators to ensure we are delivering a truly innovative event portfolio. WasteBuild Zero Live attracts the largest gathering of circular leaders and innovators in the construction sector because of our focussed content.

Now is the time for action and that is the theme of our entire engagement programme, both online and in person. Become a member now and find out what techniques, solutions, networks and materials exist to help your next project be more circular than your last.

A growing community

2022 has seen the launch of WasteBuild Zero in partnership with MRW (Materials Recycling World). The joint ventures aims to bring together the global zero waste construction and recycling industries in order to help reduce global carbon emission and tackle the climate emergency. 

The partnership will enable manufacturers to outline how their companies and trade organisations are reducing waste and wasted carbon through the production, use and recycling of a huge new audience for WasteBuild Zero. 

Materials Recycling World is the market-leading business title for the resource and waste management industry across print, online and mobile platforms. The brand’s coverage and content reflect the increasingly important role the resource management industry is playing in the wider economy. ‘waste’ materials have real value and impact on the bottom line.

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
