Hanson UK head of sustainability Martin Crow is pleased to have gained the standard for all products
Hanson has announced that it has gained the Responsible Sourcing of Materials standard for its cement range and ground granulated blastfurnace slag Regen products, which completes accreditation for the company’s whole product range. The company had previously gained the standard for its asphalt, bricks, Thermalite blocks, ready-mixed concrete and aggregates.
Responsible sourcing is recognised within the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) and BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM). The BRE Environmental and Sustainability Standard (BES) 6001: 2008 covers the environmental and social issues for organisational management and supply chain management, including all the processes from the origin of raw materials, through all stages of the manufacturing process to point of sale.
We are delighted that we have achieved the standard for all our product lines,” said Hanson UK head of sustainability Martin Crow. “It demonstrates to clients, specifiers, distributors and end-users our continuing commitment to high environmental and sustainability standards.”
