 Waste Management and Reduction workshop

The focus of this workshop is to learn the importance of waste management and reduction in construction supply chains, and how better 'waste management' can reduce costs and drive increased productivity and higher profit margins – as well as helping our planet.

At this event, you will: 

  • Hear from Balfour Beatty and leading sustainability consultant Whole Earth Futures on the key waste challenges in our industry, and understand how the Supply Chain Sustainability School is helping companies respond to these
  • Hear about the latest regulatory drivers and resulting risks relating to waste management in construction 
  • Learn about Balfour Beatty’s key strategy “25% by 25” which is driving cultural and behavioural change across the organisation
  • Hear examples of waste management innovation and how this has helped organisational performance
  • Understand how to reduce negative environmental impacts, create more value for customers, drive higher productivity and profit within your business, and help our industry become more efficient as a whole
  • Learn about the sustainability objectives of leading contractors and their key suppliers, and how to align your organisation to these
  • Network with new industry contacts in a collaborative, neutral environment
  • Gain a CPD accredited certificate when attending this workshop

Balfour Beatty are keen to ensure that their supply chain is equipped with the right knowledge to meet sustainability targets. This workshop is completely free and we expect this event to fill up quickly so register today to avoid disappointment!
