Build Back Better - ReLondon

An initiative with ReLondon that kick-started our reuse journey

In 2021 and 2022, Yodomo set out to investigate the viability of an improved technological approach to the reuse of materials, exploring better data management, traceability, technological approaches, systems thinking, along with education and behavioural change to improve the accountability of onward uses of ‘waste’ materials. Much of this R&D was pre-development and required intelligence to support any major investment in software and hardware development, at scale. 

Our research was supported by the Mayor of London’s ReLondon Build Back Better circular economy scheme. This scheme provided an additional pro bono researcher to our team.

Through this scheme, we were able to work on an extended Sustainability Procurement Policy, which informs our everyday practices.
