About Us

Introduction

Pollutions from construction industry traditionally have been controlled through laws and enforcement actions. Although this approach usefully served to punish the polluters, it is not so effective in encouraging compliance and nurturing green culture in the industry. To engage the industry in pollution prevention, the EPD has established partnership with the construction trade since 1997. Through regular contacts, sharing sessions, workshops and joint initiatives, we are able to educate construction personnel on how and why they need to control their pollutions. The payoff from these efforts is increased compliance, fewer pollution complaints and continual improvement of the industry’s overall environmental performance.
