Waste at our construction sites

Construction waste makes up nearly 75% of our total waste emissions (including landfill and recycling). We’re committed to reducing our waste while continuing to grow Aotearoa’s renewable energy assets.

This year we released our first Sustainable Infrastructure Framework. This supports our sustainability practices on major construction projects. Where waste is identified as a material impact, those responsible for major projects are required to estimate, identify and implement initiatives to ensure that, where possible, that waste is designed out and that the sustainable use of resources is optimised – following the avoid, reduce, re-use, recycle hierarchy.

Tackling Zero

Tackling Zero is Meridian’s quarterly newsletter for people whose roles or studies are focused on sustainability, or for whom this is an area of interest. Each issue will offer Meridian’s insights into a topical sustainability issue, as well as stories on how we, our customers and supply chain partners are tackling sustainability. It also includes links to recent Meridian disclosures such as new policies and reports.
