Description

BRE is running a series of events for the industry to provide training on how to use our cloud-based sustainability reporting tool – SmartWaste, as well as get an understanding of Resource Management Plans (RMPs) and best practice in construction waste management.

This training will be fully interactive and you will leave with a full understanding of how to use the SmartWaste reporting tool and produce an RMP.

SmartWaste is an easy to use cloud-based sustainability reporting tool to help you measure all your construction site impacts including waste, energy use, water use, timber and material procurement, transport emissions and more. It reports at both a project and a company level, and is aligned with the requirements of BREEAM to help maximise your site management, materials and waste credits. It is also ideal for any organisation certified to the ISO14001 environmental management system standard to demonstrate comprehensive management of your company’s environmental impacts.

N.B. This course is primarily aimed at SmartWaste users. Use of SmartWaste is only available via our SmartWaste membership scheme. For more information about the SmartWaste tool and how to become a member please call the team on 01923 664471 or click the following link. Smartsite Waste Management Software.
