Circular transition of social housing: Generating environmental, economic, and social co-benefits by design

The aim of the project is to contribute to the transformation of the affordable housing sector from a linear to a circular economy by developing a framework for Life Cycle Sustainable Assessment, where economy, environmental life cycle assessment, and social value creation are integrated. The method is being tested as decision support for stakeholder involvement in the renovation of affordable housing to understand the role of stakeholder perspectives in the conversion of construction to a circular economy and creates the basis for new circular economy advisory services and solutions.
