What Responsible Sourcing means

At Barrett Steel we work hard to ensure we comly with responsible sourcing guidelines. Responsible Sourcing is the management of sustainable development in the provision of procurement of a product. It ensures an enduring and balanced approach to economic activity, environmental responsibility and social progress.

BES 6001 is the framework standard for responsible sourcing. The construction industry is a major consumer of resources and has a large impact on the sustainability of the UK and wider world.

By employing this scheme we are ensuring at Barretts we have the means to independantly assess our products and certify them as being responsibly sourced.

Why it is important to our business

BES 6001 certification comes from the UK Contractor's Group who represent over 30 leading construction companies in our market.

Having this accreditation means we work hard to minimise the risk in our supply chains, provide certified products and enables Barrett's to deliver a route to benchmark and achieve continuous improvement regarding he sustainability of construction products.

BES 6001 Stage 1 assessment has been completed with a further assessment due to take place in November 2018.
