Materials passport platform Madaster arrives in the UK

Madaster, the register for products and materials in the built environment, makes its grand entrance in the UK today (October 3rd), aboard the clipper “City of Amsterdam”, which will be moored on the iconic River Thames following a symbolic journey from Amsterdam.

Already the leading provider of materials passports in six countries across Europe, the arrival of the Madaster platform will be a game-changer for the UK construction industry. The platform will enable the documentation and management of material data for real estate and infrastructure projects. This offers invaluable insights into the composition, location, and circular potential of construction materials. By doing so, Madaster facilitates the reuse and repurposing of these materials, effectively reducing waste, carbon emissions, and resource depletion.

The official launch event is scheduled for November 1st in London, where key stakeholders, industry front runners, and circular economy experts will meet to mark this exciting occasion. The event will feature presentations from Madaster’s leadership team, including our newly appointed Managing Director for the UK, Andrea Charlson, who will discuss the importance of material transparency and the circular economy, present the platform, talk about our plans for the UK market, and invite front runners to join Madaster UK as pioneer partners.

Madaster UK’s newly appointed Managing Director, Andrea Charlson, expressed her enthusiasm, stating, “We are thrilled to introduce Madaster’s innovative platform to the United Kingdom. As we confront the urgent challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss and resource scarcity, transitioning to a circular economy needs to be a significant part of the solution. I believe Madaster is pivotal to this transition by giving all materials in the built environment an identity. I am excited to start delivering this vision with partners from across the UK.”
