All projects and contracts in the UK have a site waste management plan through which they are required to quantify waste produced and disposal methods. This is collated monthly and reported annually. In the Middle East, recycling centres have been installed on all contract sites. All data is collated on a project basis and reported monthly. Canada appointed a national subcontractor to meet all of its waste management needs. Waste data is collated in two ways dependent upon the contract agreement. The first is by direct measurement at weighbridges and another is by skip estimation using conversion factors agreed with the environmental agency. In Canada, data is collected in a similar manner to the UK system of weighbridges.

  1. The accuracy of water consumption data prior to this date was not gathered through a central report system.

Carillion did not have any water abstraction licences with the Environment Agency in 2012.

The 2012 water consumption data will form the baseline for all future water reduction targets.

All projects and contracts where Carillion pays the water bill are required to fill in their water consumption.
