Environmental good practice on site - CIRIA's complete portfolio of resources
Construction activities have the potential to impact the surrounding
environment, from its immediate neighbours to the wider environment. Good
environmental practice enables these impacts to be managed positively.
Clients, their professional advisers, contractors and the whole construction
supply chain have responsibilities for environmental management. CIRIA has
developed a portfolio of resources, comprising publications, training and
toolbox talks, which support the delivery of environmental good practice on site
at both different levels and in different situations.
CIRIA's research takes into account recent legislative and practice
developments, to ensure that its outputs continue to provide practical advice
about managing construction on site to minimise environmental impacts, and
maintain its relevance to all concerned within the construction process.
