Abstract

The principles of circular economy begin to be essential to favor sustainable processes and
Finland is one of the few countries in the world that has developed a detailed plan for its
application. Indeed the SITRA world map obviously affects construction industry at different
levels and benefits are described through two operational addresses: the implementation of
Housing First program by the Y-Foundation, that enhance a better usage of housing building
heritage in order to solve a critical social issue, and the extensive use of wood elements for
building construction, that introduces new ecological innovations into a consolidated technical
tradition.
