Elite Systems are BES 6001 certified for responsible sourcing
Elite Systems are BES 6001 certified for responsible sourcing. Awarded through an audit of our management systems that was conducted by respected independent authority BSI, a ‘Good’ rating for the BRE standard was achieved in May 2016. BES 6001 covers all of our Elite roof and wall assemblies, which provide structural roof and wall solutions with diverse applications, flexible performance and a range of external finishes.
BES 6001 joins BBA certification of all systems and CE Marking of all components*, to provide peace of mind. This is further strengthened by pre-existing, accredited management systems for quality, the environment and health and safety. Whilst recent years have seen increased publicity associated with global environmental issues and the impacts of businesses on their communities, we have always recognized that our procurement decisions, manufacturing systems and supply practices can have an impact beyond our processes. In reaction to this we have endeavored to procure energy-efficient products and adopt appropriate ethical behavior in order to meet the needs of the present without compromising those of future generations.
Certification provides independent assurance of the robustness of our responsible sourcing management systems and compliance to the standard demonstrates that we take the environmental and social impact of sourcing components and materials seriously. BREEAM recognises the increasing importance of the issue of responsible sourcing. A section on responsible sourcing of materials is an integral part of the materials element of the methodology, with BES 6001 securing additional credits in BREEAM.
With the government’s increasing focus on sustainable development, many construction companies are recognising the need to prove that their buildings are built with sustainability in mind. One element of this is in the responsible sourcing of products used in their construction and the onus of proof is increasingly being passed down to the manufacturers of those construction products.
BRE is a world-leading, multi-disciplinary, building science centre with a mission to improve buildings through research and knowledge generation. The BRE standard BES 6001 describes a framework for the organisational governance, supply chain management and environmental and social aspects that must be addressed in order to ensure the responsible sourcing of construction products. External auditing ensures all associated requirements and practices are appropriately maintained and that we are embedding these key considerations at the core of our activities.
We continue to collaborate with key stakeholders, and operate in a manner that is safe and respectful to people, our surrounding communities and the general environment.
*All components of Elite Systems with the legislative framework that makes CE Marking possible feature a CE Mark
