Podcast – The circular economy playbook, episode 15: Sustaining steel reuse with Roy Fishwick

In this episode Ali and Andrea speak to Roy Fishwick, managing director of Cleveland Steel & Tubes Ltd. Having worked in construction for over 30 years, Roy has been at the forefront of championing for a sustainable and transformational shift in the industry, from innovation and problem solving, to legislative change. Ali and Roy discuss the challenges of sourcing reuse material and the barriers to normalising its reuse in the built environment, and how the UK is leading the way in creating circular economy practice across the construction sector, narrowing the gap between assumption and acceptance of reclaimed materials.
