As a building contractor our activities can have a significant impact on the environment, but we can make them a positive one. Our Environmental team work hard to put the right procedures in place to ensure we are meeting – and exceeding – industry regulations, including implementing key initiatives across:

Waste

With the construction industry being responsible for a third of all of waste sent to landfill within the UK, we target the highest levels of recycling to ensure that the minimum amount of waste makes it to landfill, with a minimum target of 85%, with Speller Metcalfe currently achieving 92% of all waste diverted from landfill.

Water

At Speller Metcalfe we try and minimise the amount of water we use on our sites by using water-saving products such as push taps, cisternisers in our toilets and installing water meters so we can easily target a 5% reduction in water usage across all of our sites.

Carbon

At the start of 2014, Speller Metcalfe introduced a Carbon Reduction Policy to establish our relative carbon footprint and enable us to benchmark our carbon reporting. We are proud to report that we have had zero pollution incidents for 2016-17.

Biodiversity

At Speller Metcalfe we aim to maintain existing biodiversity levels through implementing considered protection of flora and fauna on our sites.
