New Construction Environmental Manual
The new Construction Environmental Manual has been written by leading Environmental Managers and Advisors who represent a cross section of the UK’s leading construction companies. It includes seven new sections on Training, Procurement, Design, Materials, Climate Change, Greenhouse Gas Mitigation and Energy and Incident Management. The Manual is aimed at site managers and supervisors of main contractors and subcontractors, in particular it should help project managers, site agents, site foremen and engineers address environmental issues in a practical way. Reviewed by the Environment Agency and an SME representative, the Manual aims to provide those engaged, at all levels, in construction activity with a useful and pragmatic tool to help comply with their legal duties and protect the environment through simple, informative guidance on the key environmental issues and the application of accepted good practice. It is a tool that can be used to help enhance current environmental performance and this, ultimately, will help to achieve a more sustainable industry.
