A gargantuan effort from Brett Landscaping to continually improve sustainability 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 standard for Responsible Sourcing, Brett Landscaping was delighted to be awarded the highest overall ranking of “Excellent”, improving on their previous ranking of “Very Good”.
Meeting this criteria for the BES 6001 Issue 3.1 Framework Standard has pleased Rachel Stone, the Lead SHEQ Manager for Brett Landscaping.
“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 hard working Rachel.
Andrew Gill, Marketing Manager at Brett Landscaping, said: “From our customers perspective this result provides a significant benefit in working with us on projects 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.”
Due to a heavy demand, BRE produced BES 6001 and it has fast become the gold standard by which companies evaluate their endeavours to operate in a sustainable fashion.
It focuses on a range of business practices ranging from supply chain management, organisational governance and environmental and social factors to help gear the green building agenda.
