Waste Management

Jones Brothers (Henllan) Ltd are committed to minimising wastage arising from all of our operations. Our Vision embraces the principles of the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) commitment of halving waste to landfill by 2020. We validate this sustainability strategy across our business by:

  • Embedding such sustainability targets within our environmental policy and our ISO14001 system;
  • Formally agreeing targets for waste to landfill and assigning a team member with responsibility for delivery;
  • Defining our requirements within procurement processes and engaging our supply chain to ensure compliance;
  • Measuring actual performance at a project level relative to a corporate baseline;
  • Reporting annually on overall business performance and seeking year on year improvements in order to attain our 2020 target.

Our waste management policy incorporates the WRAP objectives and our suppliers and subcontractor management processes have been developed to ensure that this requirement is reciprocated along our supply chain. This fully recognises the needs for all parties, including client, designer, contractor and the ensuing supply chain to be aligned to the waste to landfill objective. Our subcontractor prequalification process will seek assurances that they will follow our own sustainability targets and will measure their actual performance against the same.

At a project level, we will develop in conjunction with our supply chain a site waste management plan which will form a part of the environmental management plan. This will ensure that:

  • Waste generation is considered at each stage of the design and construction process;
  • Waste minimisation options are assessed throughout the design, procurement and construction process and recorded within a waste minimisation matrix.
  • Segregation of waste and maximisation of reuse opportunities prior to consideration of recycling.
  • Universal supply chain alignment.
  • Implementation of a zero defects approach on project delivery.
