New campaign to reduce use of plastics in construction industry

New campaign to reduce use of plastics in construction industry

A new campaign has launched to raise awareness and showcase best practice in how the construction industry can reduce, reuse and recycle plastics and packaging.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme has launched the industry-wide campaign ‘Spotlight on...plastics and packaging’ in response to the findings from its survey of over 900 people working within the UK and Irish construction industries.

The survey found that although over 95 per cent of respondents said the industry needs to be doing something to reduce its consumption of plastics and packaging, over half of respondents (51 per cent) have little understanding of the rules and regulations surrounding plastics and packaging, and only 44 per cent know how to recycle different plastic and packaging materials.

The scheme is calling on all construction sites, companies, suppliers and clients of construction projects to drastically reduce their consumption of plastics and packaging.

“As construction is the second largest consumer of plastic in the UK, our industry has one of the greatest responsibilities to society, and to the environment, to ensure that we are working tirelessly to improve our standards in minimising waste from plastics,” says Edward Hardy, chief executive of the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

The campaign aims to raises awareness of the impact of plastics and packaging on the environment and provide the construction industry with guidance for tackling this issue.
