No Waste: Managing Sustainability in Construction explores sustainable construction at the micro level of good site practice, as well as looking at the competitive advantage offered by organizations using this approach in international construction projects. The text covers the management of sustainability and the accompanying CD-ROM includes a wealth of material as PowerPoint presentations, templates and activities that can be shared throughout the organization and used for team meetings, communication and training.No Waste, has drawn heavily on Uly Ma's experiences working with the 'No Waste' programme on the 2012 Olympic construction projects. There is a very interesting write up for the programme as part of the 'Learning Legacy' for the Games on the 2012 website.
