The builder adopted the WRAP 2012 target to halve waste to landfill back in 2008.
And last year it exceeded this target with a diversion rate from landfill of 85%.
BAM revealed the achievement in its fourth sustainability report, which sets out the firms’s performance against several targets.
New goals for 2015 see a commitment reduce carbon emissions by 25% against a 2008 baseline, and a further 25% cut in construction waste against 2010’s baseline.
It has also committed to providing 1,000 new employment and training opportunities through its operations.
Graham Cash, chief executive of BAM Construct UK, said: “We see the market for sustainable low-carbon buildings expanding every year. To show how important it is to us we have developed a set of longer-term targets right up to 2015.”
