Bradstone. The name responsible for making your decision easier
As a product range of Aggregate Industries, consideration is at the forefront of developments to increase the sustainability of garden landscaping materials.
This journey commenced a decade ago, when the company took the decision to focus on and invest in developing sustainable solutions across our comprehensive range of innovative building products.
Today, this investment is reaping real rewards, with Aggregate Industries involved in a number of important and influential initiatives designed to make it easy for you, the consumer, both to recognise the most sustainable materials and identify those that have been most responsibly sourced.
The Responsible Source
Chances are, you’ve heard mention of responsible sourcing in the news.
In very straightforward terms, responsible sourcing is all about measuring the specific environmental, economic and social impacts of any product, taking into account such factors as its manufacture, delivery, use, re-use and recyclability.
The good news is that Aggregate Industries was the first company in the world to achieve the BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing Certificate from BRE Global.
What does this mean to you? Well, with this unique status, you can have absolute confidence that our products have been responsibly sourced and that you’re getting the construction industry’s most sustainable and future proof solutions.
In short, you don’t just know what you’re getting – you also know where you’re getting it from.
Responsible sourcing is just one of many important environmental steps taken by us.
