We are committed to providing a quality, value-for-money service that makes it as easy as possible for our clients to manage their resources sustainably and to reduce the environmental impact of their waste. But sustainability is more than that to Powerday so we aim to embed sustainability in all areas of our work with clients to ensure the best social, environmental and economic outcomes for everyone.
We have always diverted, and will continue to divert, 100% of construction and demolition waste from landfill for our clients. We know that this is not enough through so we are also continually seeking to move waste up the hierarchy. Much of the waste we handle is hard to recycle, and reuse presents further challenges, but we are always looking for innovative approaches to our clients’ materials and have had significant success in recent years. This includes segregating clean grade A wood for reuse through Community Wood Recycling and recycling the rest into new wood products. It also includes keeping rigid plastics in the circular economy through our contracts with forward-thinking companies such as Protec.
We know that managing resources sustainably requires robust measurement and reporting which is why we provide this to the highest standards. Our clients have access to real time information including recycling performance reports, financial information and status updates through our client portal and this data is externally verified through the PAS 402 standard, covering all our six sites. We continue to innovate in this area, through our market leading app Powerday PAL.
We collaborate with as many of our clients as possible to provide value to communities local to their, and our, sites. Recently this has included sponsoring the British Down syndrome swimming championships with Keltbray, and volunteering with Bowmer & Kirkland on a community centre project in West London. We have, worked with many clients to collect donations for food banks including Hill, Clipfine and Bowmer and Kirkland, Sky Labs and ISG.
“Many clients are moving towards goals of net zero carbon and zero waste in the next decade or two. We want to be able to support our clients in these goals so will be looking to hold collaborative events in 2023 to build a clearer understanding of what that looks like and what it means to our business. We will continue throughout the year to review existing routes for materials and work with clients to identify opportunities to move wastes up the hierarchy. We will also continue to support clients with projects that provide a wider social good.” Anthony Davitt, Sales Director
It remains a priority for us to ensure the health and safety of our employees, clients and the general public at all times. We work hard to retain a strong health and safety culture and continue to ensure our operations do not have a negative impact on people and the planet.
