In line with our Environmental Objectives Policy, we encourage recycling and waste minimisation, and follow WRAP guidance. We strive to improve our resource efficiency by working with our Clients and Supply Chain to optimise the use of raw materials and minimise the amount of waste sent to landfill. At present our waste carriers are recycling over 90% of the construction waste from our current project sites, and from Head Office, a significant step towards our goal of zero waste by 2020.
We monitor our water use, and install reduction measures, including rainwater harvesting and greywater recycling on many of our projects. Our rainwater recycling continues with waterbutts on our sites. A recent example is the Atherton Leisure Centre, where greywater recycling was incorporated into the wc system to reduce the environmental impact and running cost of the building.
Our Sustainable Procurement Policy aims to ensure that all timber we use is from certified sources such as FSC or PEFC. We seek to prioritise the use of responsibly sourced material and material with recycled content in all our projects, aided by our in-house Sustainability team, who undertake reviews of our projects, including seeking good ratings in the Green Guide to Specification. We encourage and support our Supply Chain to strive to procure responsibly and to ensure they operate in a safe and environmentally responsible way, promote and develop sustainable solutions and best practices, following our Sustainability Policy.
