The poster presents the first and the third items in detail. The material flow analysis was conducted in GIS and it is based on the building and dwelling registers in Tampere. Among other things, it presents an overview of the volume and development of activities by building type, and zooms geographically into identified areas of building 'replacement', i.e. areas where both demolition and building construction to take place, to understand the drivers of demolition and the nature of the materials pertaining to both activities better.
The development of the future steering instruments is based on reviewing the current Finnish literature regarding steering instruments for circular economy and low carbon construction. In addition to identifying existing instruments, some new instruments are proposed, which have not been considered in this context yet. The work entails a steering theoretical discussion on the instruments' limits and possibilities. Tentative criteria are proposed for given instruments for future development.
The work was conducted in EcoFellows Ltd. The authors of the poster are Satu Huuhka and Mario Kolkwitz. Jussi Lahti also contributed to the work in the project. Most of the results have been published in Finnish only, so the authors would welcome the chance to disseminate in English via this poster.
