The scale of the challenge for the construction industry to decarbonise and become more resource efficient is laid bare in this issue.

A strength of IOM3 is the breadth of technical disciplines and the opportunity to spot potential synergies between them to confront these challenges. Dr Antonios Kanellopoulos MIMMM shares his vision for upcycling mine tailings for construction materials.

Meanwhile, our Chairs of the IOM3 Packaging and Construction Materials Groups join forces to discuss construction packaging waste. Did you know that a third of construction waste by volume is packaging?

With soaring prices and concerns around energy security, Dr Richard Oblath FIMMM, Chair of the IOM3 Energy Transition Group, laments the absence of energy efficiency in the UK Government’s recent strategy.

This view is echoed by Lord Rupert Redesdale, Founder of The Energy Managers’ Association. He promotes the role of Energy Managers to help companies operate differently and reduce their consumption.

We hope you enjoy this issue.
