Understanding the minimum requirements for waste in Green Star Buildings

This masterclass will explore the new Green Star Buildings minimum expectations for waste, and what this means for projects teams. It will enable you to understand what the changes are and what this means in practice.

Increase your knowledge on the new minimum expectations for operational and construction and demolition waste. Learn about the current waste market and what technologies and tools are available for your project.

The experts will discuss upcoming legislation, future proofing challenges as well as present case studies and take you on their successful waste management journey.
