We are delighted to announce that we have been working with BSI (British Standards Institute) to achieve a BES 6001 accreditation. This is a certification for the responsible sourcing of construction products.
With the UK Government increasing its focus on sustainable development, we felt it was important to demonstrate that our products are made with constituent materials that have been responsibly sourced. This BES 6001 certification gives us the ability to prove to specifiers and contractors that we have an effective system for ensuring our products are sustainable.
As part of the certification, Tobermore has been added to the BRE’s (Building Research Establishment) Responsible Sourcing League Table of compliant companies.
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, as well as retail organisations that sell construction products such as the large DIY stores.
