Discover SmartWaste, the leading construction sustainability software that enables sustainable construction practices.


SmartWaste empowers the construction industry to deliver sustainability. We believe technology can help to drive meaningful change by helping businesses to reduce their environmental impact. SmartWaste helps organisations achieve their sustainability and net zero carbon goals.

Pioneering sustainability

BRE created SmartWaste to address the significant environmental impact of the construction industry. Over the years, we have enhanced and refined our software to provide focused solutions that address the unique challenges of sustainable construction. Today, SmartWaste is a trusted partner for businesses worldwide, helping them to manage waste, materials, energy and water, reduce carbon emissions, and meet their sustainability targets.

Enabling change

Our aim is to make sustainable construction the norm rather than the exception. We provide businesses with the tools they need to track and manage their environmental impact, from waste generation and disposal to materials sourcing and usage.

SmartWaste enables the construction industry to make sustainability an integral part of the construction process. We help businesses to meet their environmental targets and realise the cost efficiency benefits of sustainable practices.
