ENCORD Construction Waste Measurement Protocol
This document provides guidance on how to measure and report waste arisings and reuse/recycling/recovery from construction, demolition and excavation activities on construction projects. The quantity data produced can also be used calculate Scope 3 CO2e emissions from waste as laid out in the ENCORD Construction CO2e Measurement Protocol.
The Protocol is referenced in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Construction and Real Estate Sector Suppliment (CRESS) as a source of measurement guidance. Although this document focuses on EU legislation to help define and categorise waste, the principles of measurement can be used by any construction organisation to establish the quantities of waste produced, and subsequent reuse/ recycling/ recovery. However it is not intended to supersede any local or national legal reporting guidelines.
