Aggregate Industries is BRE global ‘excellent’

5th March 2010

We achieved our third BRE Global world first in twelve months with a BES 6001 ‘Excellent’ at one of its sites.

Our ready mixed plant at Perry Barr, Birmingham has recently been assessed by BRE Global against BES 6001: Issue 2 Framework Standard for the Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products and received final BRE Global verification of its ‘Excellent’ rating earlier this week.  

Exactly 12 months ago, we became the first company to be approved to BES 6001 by achieving responsible sourcing certification for operations at one of its quarry sites in the Midlands. The business achieved the standard company wide in August 2009 with a ‘Good’ rating given across all products and sites. With today’s BES 6001 ‘Excellent’ announcement, we are dominating responsible sourcing in the UK construction sector. 

Introduced by BRE Global in 2008, the BES 6001 framework standard is an independent certification scheme which assesses responsible sourcing policies and practices throughout the supply chain of construction products. With one assessment covering raw material, its manufacture and delivery, its use, re-use and recyclability, the universal rating system enables architects, specifiers and construction professionals to meet sustainability targets more easily. 

Our Group Chief Executive, Bill Bolsover, said: “The achievements of Aggregate Industries in responsible sourcing are phenomenal. Just 12 months ago I announced the first BES 6001 certification at EcoBuild and since then we have continued to drive the business and the sector forward. Responsible sourcing is believed in and supported company wide allowing Aggregate Industries customers to source with great confidence. The business will now be working towards BES 6001 ‘Excellent’ across all of its operations.” 

Carol Atkinson, Chief Executive of BRE Global, said: “We are extremely pleased that Aggregate Industries is continuing to strive for excellence in responsible sourcing.  We hope by achieving this improved standard it will set a precedent for other companies to continue to raise the bar.” 

Carol Atkinson, Chief Executive of BRE Global presented Aggregate Industries, with the company’s BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing Framework Standard ‘Excellent’ certificate at EcoBuild on 3 March 2010.
