SUEZ helps businesses in the construction sector recover large amounts of waste generated by their activities, creating value from waste and protecting the environment. SUEZ guarantees operational efficiency through safe work sites and compliance with deadlines, costs and regulatory constraints.
Managing large volumes of waste generated by construction activities
The construction sector produces a considerable amount of waste. Sorting and recovering building waste has become a major challenge for all industry players.
In a demanding profession operating in an environment with increasingly complex regulations, building sector stakeholders must comply with regulations which are shifting towards increased waste recovery. They must reconcile building site safety in a hazardous environment with meeting deadlines, costs and site specifications. All construction activities are now rooted in a sustainable development approach and a lower environmental footprint.
Companies in the construction sector seek to balance multiple issues:
Developing their customers’ trust by increased responsiveness, regulatory compliance and waste recovery expertise
Work sites safety, in particular with regard to shifts, residents, waste assessment and the environment
Securing contracts by meeting deadlines, costs, specifications, standards and achieving conclusive results
Demonstrating their exemplary approach with a low environmental footprint, a positive image to customers and their role as a responsible employer
