Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) events

This event has finished

The Construction Industry Council is supporting the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) as it delivers reconstruct – a series of high-level, complimentary events aimed at the construction industry.

The UK-wide programme is designed to give practical advice and support on increasing the levels of recycled content across projects.

Responsible for almost 30% of the total waste output of the UK , our industry has a vital role to play in lessening the environmental impact of our work. Importantly, increasing the level of recycled content on a project is cost-neutral, low risk and has no impact on performance. Clients are demanding buildings and projects that meet more stringent environmental criteria – and the most progressive businesses are now striving to meet that demand. The important message to take from this is that we have a real opportunity to make our industry’s future more sustainable, more environmentally sound and even more profitable.

The Breakfast Programme (running in June) is for clients and senior decision makers. The Workshop and Seminar Programme (running through September and October) is aimed at operational levels.
