Russell Roof Tiles has been Accredited with BES 6001, demonstrating sustainable development in the provision and procurement of construction products, following an extensive audit.
Russell Roof Tiles was given a very good’ performance rating according to the standard.
Russell Roof Tiles provide roof tiles for leading UK house builders and high profile social housing projects, where sustainability and eco-credentials are of the utmost priority.
In addition, the house building industry is becoming increasingly aware of the benefit of lowering the carbon footprint of new buildings, which includes how the property is roofed.
Russell specialise in concrete roof tiles
Compared to traditional clay roof tiles, concrete tile manufacturing requires considerably less energy usage during production.
Mark Parsons Commercial Technical Manager at Russell Roof Tiles:
It is important as a UK manufacturer to demonstrate to stakeholders that we monitor and look to improve all aspects of our business operations. The accreditation sets the standard for best practice in sustainable construction, which continues to be a major issue in construction, particularly in house building.
Russell Roof Tiles has a policy which advocates our key raw materials are locally sourced and we closely monitor our supply chain, ensuring its adherence to environmental, social regulatory and legislative benchmarks, so that we can receive recognition such as BES 6001.
Reporting carbon reduction targets to stakeholders is another important measure within BES 6001.
The Government’s Code for Sustainable Homes’ is becoming more centred on reducing the carbon footprint of construction materials, not only the carbon footprint of the finished building. Concrete roof tiles have a lower embodied carbon than those of clay, representing less than 20 per cent of the weight of the tile composition; the remainder of the materials used in production are natural products.
