With increasing focus on sustainable development, many companies in our sector are recognising the importance of making sure that their buildings have been constructed with sustainability in mind. One aspect of this is related to the responsible sourcing of products used in building construction.

What is BES 6001?
The BRE standard BES 6001 has been published to order for construction product manufacturers to ensure and then prove that their products have been made with materials that have been responsibly sourced. The standard includes a framework for various aspects such as the organisational governance, supply chain management and environmental and social aspects that must be addressed in order to ensure the responsible sourcing of construction products.
BES 6001 gives the organisation the ability to prove that an effective
system for ensuring responsible sourcing exists and added credibility to any claims made.
BES 6001 is relevant to any organisation that manufactures construction products from foundation products such as cement and steel to concrete pipes and blocks, windows, flooring, roof tiles, plastics, wood products.
BES 6001 is recognised by BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method for buildings), and can support the achieving of BREEAM points.
What is BREEAM?
BREEAM is a leading sustainability assessment for infrastructure and buildings. It covers a number of lifecycle stages such as New Construction, Refurbishment and In-Use. BREEAM promotes best practice for all aspects of sustainable property development. BREEAM recognised Responsible Sourcing Certification schemes as BES 6001.
