Good environmental performance and the priorities emerging from COP26 require positive solutions. Maylim wanted to be ahead of the game and has already been using SmartWaste for two and a half years. By establishing a robust and accurate baseline using SmartWaste, Maylim has been able to interrogate the data and has set a number of short, medium and long-term objectives. The access to data and trends has enabled Maylim to identify specific focus areas for improvement. For example, fuel usage data has prompted the search for alternative and more sustainable fossil fuel-free solutions to fuel Maylim’s plant and equipment.

Accurate reporting on carbon emissions is helping Maylim set and achieve its sustainability and CO2 reduction objectives. Recording the materials used on its projects in SmartWaste provides clearer and more representative data to inform its sustainable construction policies and advise clients accordingly. Maylim’s core values include a duty to ensure good environmental performance in all business operations.

In June 2021, Maylim introduced its Environmental and Sustainable Construction Policy Statements.

“Since deploying the platform, Maylim has exceeded its targets and it will become a central tool to quantify Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions and achieve the organisation’s net zero carbon aspirations. Maylim has regular contact with the SmartWaste team, who are consistently helpful and responsive.”
– Maria Troy, Quality and Compliance Manager at Maylim


Maylim aspires to be an industry leader in environmental performance and sustainable consumption. To achieve this Maylim needed a platform to record its scope 1 and 2 fuel and waste usage and carbon emissions. Implementing SmartWaste into the day to day running of projects provides a mechanism to record consumption and environmental performance and identify areas for improvement.

“Maylim implemented SmartWaste in 2019 to start our journey to reduce the negative impacts on the environment caused by our operations. The platform provides a comprehensive and accurate source to record and interrogate our data.”
– Maria Troy, Quality and Compliance Manager at Maylim


As a result of using SmartWaste, Maylim has been able to improve its environmental focus to ensure its alignment with industry standards.

The platform has helped Maylim identify a baseline from which meaningful objectives for improvements can be set. SmartWaste data is also helping Maylim exceed on its waste diversion from landfill target of 94%, as it is now achieving 98%.


For Maylim, the benefits of using SmartWaste include:

  • A comprehensive and accurate source to record and interrogate data

  • Streamlined environmental performance reporting

  • Support with setting short, medium and long-term objectives

  • A measure of resource use and sustainable consumption

Maylim is currently refining its net zero carbon policy. By using SmartWaste they have been able to capture the carbon footprint of its current projects. This baseline is providing insight on where improvement can be made and helping Maylim set its sustainable construction policy objectives.

Maylim is also trialling the use of biofuel and will be capturing this consumption in SmartWaste going forward. This will help to determine the environmental benefits of this carbon free fuel. By the start of 2022, every Maylim project will be using SmartWaste, extending the platform’s usage across the organisation.
