The Built Environment Knowledgebase was developed by WRAP between 2002 and 2014 in collaboration with the sector and trade bodies to help businesses become more resource efficient. WRAP’s work led to huge environmental change through the development and execution of initiatives such as Halving Waste to Landfill (HW2L) and the Built Environment Commitment.
WRAP has also been heavily involved in such iconic projects as London 2012, the Shard and Crossrail, ensuring that resource efficiency stayed at the forefront of innovative thinking. However, since the completion of Halving Waste to Landfill, WRAP’s funding for this sector has reduced and the programme closed in March 2014. Since then, WRAP has been in discussion with stakeholders in the construction sector to secure the future of the outputs of the Programme.
