John Lambert, Director and General Manager at Forticrete commented:-
"The Government is increasing its focus on sustainable development. Many construction companies now recognise the need to prove that building products have a sustainable footprint. 'Green' claims are easy to make, but much harder to substantiate."
"Forticrete has a strong commitment to the environment and sustainable building. The company has already been awarded the ISO 14001 environment management standard. I am very pleased to announce that we have now been awarded the BES 6001 standard. This covers our entire product range. The standard has been achieved by all our manufacturing sites. This is a truly fantastic achievement."
"The Code for Sustainable Homes also recognises the BES 6001 standard. This gives developers using certified products additional credits. This accreditation will give our customers peace of mind. Irrespective of which product or site they utilise, reaching their sustainability targets will be a much easier process."
