Living within planetary limits: impact assessment tools for cities and regions

Featured image

To live within planetary boundaries, cities need to measure not only what is produced, but also what is consumed.

Consumption-based emissions can be more difficult to measure than emissions from production – it is challenging for a city or region to track imported products and their associated emissions.

However, consumption can be much bigger than production, and the two together provide a much more complete picture of a city or region's 'footprint'. Check out Metabolic's article from 2020 to learn more.

On the journey to a circular economy, don’t forget your materials passport

Featured image

If we can find a way to reuse building materials for new construction effectively, the energy, labor, and transportation costs of producing new materials can be saved, and so can the associated emissions.

Check out this article by Metabolic, where they dive into a promising potential solution: materials passports.

Building back better with a systemic approach

Featured image

As the world grapples with vaccinations, variants, and how to return to "normal", it’s a good time to reflect on whether or not we are fully equipped to prevent future shocks.

Building true resilience means addressing the systemic issues that make our world increasingly fragile, by understanding the deeper structures and mental models at the root of a problem to create lasting solutions.

Check out our article done by Metabolic last year about building back better.

How the public sector can use DLTs for good

Featured image

Distributed Ledger Technologies have a lot of potential "as a visible tool that improves the lives of citizens and their communities" and the focus should be on the concrete problems that the public sector faces in delivering services to citizens

“You’re going to have to say, it improves mobility, it improves the fight against climate change, affordable housing, a better city, better participation. It’s not going to be about DLTs.” - Francesca Bria, president of the Italian National Innovation Fund

Metabolic concluded the DLT4EU program in May with the goal to drive innovation in the public sector by connecting the expertise of top-notch entrepreneurs with real-world problems, to create new solutions.

Urban mining and circular construction – what, why, and how it works

Featured image

When the functional lifetime of an object is over, its highest possible value should be retained. This shortens supply chains, increases resilience, and safeguards the environment from manufacturing-related emissions.

Currently, the construction sector is optimized for a linear supply chain. This is mainly due to a lack of information on harvestable materials and their reuse value.

Learn more about urban mining and how it can help us move towards a circular economy.
