How we’re making buildings greener
We’ve worked hard to reduce our negative impact on the environment and make it easier for you to reduce yours, too. Keep reading to discover some of the policies and plans that make us proud.
Our Sustainability Commitments
Managing waste and water
We’re reusing more waste and water at our most water-intensive sites. This helps us minimise our negative environmental impact and reduce our use of essential resources.
Building a circular economy
The circular economy starts with limiting the need to recycle. We focus on zero waste, finding alternative sources for our raw materials, and repurposing and reclaiming materials.
BES 6001 Framework for Responsible Sourcing is an independent, third-party certification scheme from The Building Research Establishment (BRE). It assesses various objectives across the value chain and is accepted by the BREEAM assessment scheme – the key badge of building sustainability.
Making environmental product data freely available
We publish externally accredited environmental product declarations (EPDs) for 23 key product ranges. These certificates give you an externally verified life-cycle analysis of each product. EPDs help you calculate the impact of our products and create more sustainable specifications.
