WRAP works in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to help businesses and individuals reap the benefits of reducing waste, develop sustainable products and use resources in an efficient way.
The construction industry is responsible for some 120 million tonnes of construction, demolition and excavation waste every year – around one third of all waste in the UK.
Over 200 signatories signed up to Halving Waste to Landfill in its first year.
...A simple statement of intent:
'We commit to playing our part in halving the amount of construction, demolition and excavation waste going to landfill by 2012. We will work to adopt and implement standards for good practice in reducing waste, recycling more, and increasing the use of recycled and recovered materials’
By supporting the Commitment – and delivering against it – your business has an opportunity to improve its performance, reduce its carbon footprint and show itself to be a leader in the sustainability arena.
From clients to developers, manufacturers, contractors and designers, we are asking the industry as a whole to publicly support this sector goal of halving the amount of construction, demolition and excavation waste being sent to landfill by 2012. Achieving this goal means meeting the challenges being set by the Strategy for Sustainable Construction and in Scotland the Government’s policy of achieving Zero Waste.
This is a voluntary agreement and you might already be doing more. By signing up, you can formalise your commitment to improving sustainability and measure your success.
