Brett Landscaping achieves Excellent rating for BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing

Some years ago Brett Landscaping were one of the first businesses in their sector to achieve certification to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and BES 6001. Now a concerted effort to continually improve the sustainability of Brett Landscaping has resulted in the business receiving the top classification for responsible sourcing from the BRE Trust - the UK’s leading independent accreditation service for sustainability.

During the recent re-verification for the BES 6001 Issue 3.1 Framework Standard for Responsible Sourcing, Brett Landscaping was delighted to be awarded the highest overall ranking of “Excellent”, an improvement on the previous ranking of “Very Good”.

“This is great news for us because it gives a tangible reward for the efforts that our team have been making in recent years to continually improve our operations” said Rachel Stone, the Lead SHEQ Manager for Brett Landscaping, who had worked particularly hard with the production team to help achieve this result for the business.

Andrew Gill, Marketing Manager at Brett Landscaping, commented “From our customers perspective this result provides a significant benefit for them when working to achieve BREEAM targets - or any project where sustainability is a key consideration. However, this is only a step, albeit a significant one, in our ongoing drive to operate our business in the most sustainable ways to help deliver a greener built environment for future generations.

“This result, allied to the availability of our commercial product range as BIM objects via the National BIM Library and free-to-use design tools such as PermCalc really does help make Brett Landscaping the partner of choice for commercial paving projects.”

Responding to demand for an independent third party responsible sourcing standard for the construction industry, BRE produced BES 6001 and it has quickly become the de facto standard by which companies evaluate their efforts to operate in a sustainable fashion.

The BES 6001 Framework Standard for Responsible Sourcing is the building industry’s gold standard for sustainability within the supply chain. It focuses on a range of business practices ranging from organisational governance, supply chain management and environmental and social factors to help drive the green building agenda.
