BAM achieves highest benchmark score in circular business practices

(Source: Duurzaam Ondernemen) Construction company BAM achieved the highest score for circular business practise. This score is based on a comparative study focussed on recycling and waste reduction among 52 Dutch listed companies, conducted by the Vereniging van Beleggers voor Duurzame Ontwikkeling (VBDO).

VBDO specifically mentioned the innovations BAM has completed and recently started. An example of this is Low Emissions Asphalt Pavement, which is being produced at lower production temperatures. This innovative technique provides a CO2 reduction of 30 percent and 30 to 40 percent reduction in energy usage.

Additionally, the construction company puts a lot of effort in ongoing conversations with contractors, partners and suppliers about the recyclability of building materials and constructions. Even during the construction process the sustainability is being monitored and improved. 

The sources on which VBDO’s study is based on consisted of the sustainability reports published by the 52 listed companies. In the sustainability report of BAM Group, developments regarding the LE2AP project were mentioned.
