Kloeckner Metals UK has announced that its Leeds, Westok, London and Dudley sites have obtained BES 6001 certification for responsible sourcing of construction products.
The company said this certification will help it ensure and demonstrate that its products have been made using materials that have been responsibly sourced and in a sustainable manner.
Developed by BRE (Building Research Establishment), the environmental and sustainability standard specifies requirements for organisational management, supply chain management and sustainability issues in order to allow companies to demonstrate an ongoing commitment to the principles of responsible sourcing in relation to the provision of products.
Kevin Maddison, Kloeckner Metals UK Group Quality Manager said: “We are incredibly proud of this new certification as it reflects Kloeckner’s ongoing commitment to improving its environmental and social impact.
‘The new BES 6001 standard gives our customers further assurance that materials are of high-quality and sourced responsibly from ethical suppliers.”
