BUILT CoLAB and APA – Portuguese Environment Agency, together with AICCOPN and IP Leiria, co-organized two face-to-face Capacity Building Actions (one in Leiria and another one in Porto) in the scope of the Circular Agreement with the Construction Industry, dedicated to the topic “Construction and demolition waste management: what has changed? What’s new?”.
This Training Action aimed to support the application of the new regulations and promote a more circular management of construction waste, given the recent amendment of the General Waste Management Regime.
To this end, Patrícia Teixeira and Mafalda Mota from APA addressed the main aspects of compliance with the legal framework, the relevant changes compared to the previous regime, the applicable concepts and also the reporting obligations.
This was followed by a Q&A session in which participants had the opportunity to ask their main questions, a session moderated by Rodrigo Gonçalves, Director of the Waste Division of APA. The debate was moderated by Rodrigo Gonçalves from APA.
The sessions also featured presentations by Sónia Oliveira and Cristina Cardoso from AICCOPN, Paulo Vieira Fonseca from BUILT CoLAB, and Ana Sargento from IP Leiria, and Marco Pedroso from BUILT CoLAB in Leiria.
This session was not recorded. Therefore, if you did not have the opportunity to attend, but want to deepen your knowledge on the subject, you can watch here a Capacity Building Action that took place on 08 February, dedicated to the same subject and with the participation of the same APA speakers.
We recall that this initiative took place within the scope of the Circular Agreement with the Construction Industry, the Collaboration Protocol promoted by the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Action, between BUILT CoLAB and the Environmental Fund, with the participation of APA – Portuguese Environment Agency -, and which also has CIP – Portuguese Business Confederation – as partner entities, CPCI – Portuguese Confederation of Construction and Real Estate -, AICCOPN – Association of Civil Construction and Public Works Industries -, AECOPS – Association of Construction and Public Works and Services Companies -, PTPC – Portuguese Technological Platform for Construction -, and IMPIC – Institute of Public Markets, Real Estate and Construction, I.
