Certification to BES 6001 enables our customers to source from us with even greater confidence. And whilst we are extremely proud of this achievement, we believe that gaining certification is only a small part of truly sustainable construction.

More than just recycled materials

Under the BES 6001 Framework Standard, products are assessed by looking at existing quality, environmental, health and safety management systems together with other important criteria including:

• Greenhouse gas emissions
• Resource use
• Waste, water and life cycle assessment
• Local communities
• Employment and skills
• Business ethics. 

The framework standard assessment

One product assessment covers the raw material, its source or provinance, its manufacture and a range of social and environmental impacts. BES 6001 is directly referenced in leading assessment achemes such as BREEAM and Ceequal. The universal rating system of BES 6001 enables architects, specifiers and construction professionals to meet sustainability targets more easily.
