Environment

This page provides details of CECA's activities in relation to environmental issues in the civil engineering sector.

CECA works hard to bring key environmental information to its members and encourages them to develop environmental policies that are realistic, deliverable, and in harmony with the UK's climate change commitments to reduce up to 24 million tonnes of carbon and thus save the UK £1.46 billion a year by 2050.

CECA works closely with a range of industry stakeholders including:

  • Build UK
  • CIRIA
  • Environment Agency
  • Defra
  • Construction Products Association
  • Construction Plant-hire Association

CECA members are provided with CECA's Corporate Responsibility Toolkit free of charge on request, to help firms meet demand from clients that they address the CR agenda.

CECA also carries out an annual environmental statistics survey which provides essential trends in data back to members, so they can benchmark themselves with their peers.

CECA actively contributed to the development of the Government's Sustainable Construction Strategy, ensuring that it reflected the needs of the industry. CECA has also responded to industry requirements for construction-related guidance on waste management.

CECA publications relating to the environment that are in the public domain are linked below. Further publications are available to CECA members via the members' area.
