Construction Recycling Alliance launches in the UK
THE Construction Recycling Alliance (CRA) – a new organization created to represent and support companies in the construction industry that are dedicated to reducing, recycling and reusing unwanted materials – has been launched in the UK.
CRA membership, which is available to corporate enterprises in the construction sector, as well as companies from interrelated sectors such as demolition, remediation and waste management, offers companies an opportunity to achieve a new environmental accreditation specifically created for construction-related activities.
Membership of the organization is granted upon completion of a CRA assessment to ensure applicants are fully committed to reducing, recycling and reusing unwanted materials.
The CRA will support its members by sharing innovative recycling techniques, disseminating guidelines and regulations, as well as liaising with policy-makers at local, regional and national levels.
In addition, members’ profiles will be featured on the CRA website and their environmental techniques and initiatives will be showcased in the CRA’s magazine – The Construction Recycling Journal.
Several high-profile companies have already been accepted as new members, including multidisciplinary contractors FM Conway, who are widely regarded as one of the most environmentally conscious highway maintenance organizations in the UK, with a minimum of 95% of all their highway arisings recovered as reusable aggregates.
Commenting on the launch of the CRA, director David Barnes said: ‘I hope CRA membership will prove popular for companies across the construction sector. By joining together under the CRA framework, companies will be able to effectively communicate with regulatory bodies and also improve their environmental credentials.’
Companies interested in joining the organization should contact the CRA on tel: (01483) 542923 or via the contact form below.
