Waste & Pollution

Work towards near zero waste to landfill from our sites and offices

We aim to continuously improve the diversion of non-hazardous waste to get ever closer to zero as part of our drive for sustainability and cost–efficiency. Included in this goal is the Project Environmental Plan for each site which is supported by measures including:

  • Reducing, re–using and designing out waste under our assessment of the waste hierarchy for each project.
  • Designing out waste from the outset in all aspects of the building process.
  • Working with our suppliers to develop take–back schemes, whilst minimising waste in delivery, packaging and storage of materials.
  • Setting targets and enabling good practice for reducing our corporate waste from our offices – paper and print materials being a key focus.
  • Making sure waste performance is included in our Annual Management Reviews, with new, more ambitious targets set each year.
