Waste Management from Construction Processes
WHA Group (“the Company”) is committed to enhancing waste management processes across all four business hubs, in line with the Environmental Quality, Energy Conservation, and Biodiversity Policy. This commitment extends to processes associated with waste management as outlined in Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA). Moreover, WHA Group has established a working committee to oversee and manage waste and demolition waste, ensuring compliance with legal requirements. This committee will assess and categorize waste types generated from the operations of the Company as well as promote effective waste management policies.
Additionally, WHA Group places significant importance on managing waste arising from construction processes, with a focus on selecting contractors that ensure environmentally and socially responsible construction materials. Strategies and plans are developed to control and reduce waste from construction projects, including demolition waste of projects and buildings within WHA Group with 100% coverage. The following measures are implemented:
- Each project within WHA Group is required to have a project engineer and a safety officer working together to plan and design waste management schemes that align with construction plans. Factors such as quantity, duration, materials, construction area, and temporary space are considered while complying with relevant laws.
- Project-specific safety officers are responsible for documenting the removal of waste from project areas and verifying the proper handling of various waste types.
- Contractors are required to separate construction waste from operational waste, ensuring proper storage and disposal practices, with 100% compliance for all projects under WHA Group.
- Contractors are mandated to provide suitable containers with tightly sealed lids for waste storage on construction sites.
- Contractors are obligated to assign responsible personnel for systematic collection and disposal of waste/garbage.
- Contractors are required to organize waste collection points systematically to facilitate proper disposal, recycling, and potential resale according to the principles of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle (3Rs), including provisions for purchase/sale.
- All 100% of employees, workers, and subcontractors must be assigned waste management responsibilities according to the specified protocols. They should receive training, knowledge enhancement, and technical skills related to proper waste management practices.
- In this regard, due to the construction and waste management processes being the responsibility of all contractors, resource conservation and the utilization of construction materials generated for repeated benefits through the processes of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, as well as various buying, selling, and exchanging activities, will provide incentives for contractors to retain revenues and savings from materials recovery, amounting to 100 percent.
