- Use on a larger scale sustainable construction materials and raw materials, e.g. regionally sourced, with appropriate environmental certification;
- Promote the use of recycled or renewable materials for our operations;
- Extend the life of buildings and materials by making them recyclable and reusable;
- Continuously reduce the amount of waste generated.
The amount of waste generated by the Unibep Group depends largely on the number of projects carried out. Waste is mainly generated during the construction process, e.g. during demolition and renovation work.
The waste management process on construction sites is planned during the preparation of the Safety and Health Protection Plan (S&HP), which includes the “Waste Management Plan”.
The Unibep Group entities manage the waste they generate, entrusting its storage, processing and transport to companies with the relevant permits.
Irrespective of the contractual regulations between an entity from the Unibep Group and the Contractor with respect to fees for waste disposal and the provision of containers for waste collection, the following waste management rules apply on the project site:
- segregation of municipal waste and regular emptying of containers,
- segregation of construction waste into basic fractions such as rubble, wood, insulation materials, iron and steel, soil,
- separate collection of hazardous waste in labelled and sealed containers.
The number and type of containers during construction is variable and depends on the scope of the works being carried out.
In addition, prior to the commencement of the works, the Contractor is obliged to specify in the Safe Working Instructions the type and quantity of hazardous waste to be generated and to indicate the method of waste management in accordance with the assumptions of the “Waste Management Plan” and appropriate to the scope of its works.
