Water pollution from construction activities comes in several forms. Substances such as silt, fuels, cement, adhesives, solvents and paints are only a small number of examples of the types of chemicals and materials that can enter our water systems through several channels. However, though this is a well-known phenomenon, there are, as of yet, no standardised frameworks to minimise this type of pollution.
Construction is a vital industry upon which we are all reliant for safe, quality buildings, housing and infrastructure. Construction companies can simultaneously build the foundations for our communities, whilst ensuring these foundations are sustainable.
We here at Ecocoast and Bolina are industry leaders in providing construction companies with the insights and tools required to allow them to fulfil their development commitments in a way that minimises their impact on the local environment, and ensures a more sustainable future for the people that they serve.
