  • Wienerberger - John Sandford "Lets make the best of BES 6001"
    s no guarantee that it will be a variety of alternative options are being discussed As such many companies are looking for other ways to ensure that they are manufacturing sustainably and one of these is through certification to BES 6001 This Building Research Establishment BRE protocol represents a sustainability standard incorporating organisational governance supply chain management and environmental concerns for companies to prove that their constituent materials and products have been responsibly sourced It is an initiative that my company Wienerberger has long supported with our Warnham brick factory being the first in the sector to be certified in 2009 Yet there are proposed revisions to the BES 6001 certification framework that give me some cause for concern a concern also shared by the Brick Development Association BDA and the British Ceramic Confederation BCC Of course the issues aren t at all in relation to the principles or intentions of the scheme but rather with the impact of these last minute changes on the prospects of attracting companies to the BES 6001 accreditation which surely should be the aim Naturally much of the minutia of the framework is very technical but from my perspective many of the changes which have been made at the end of a long consultation period that didn t suggest that such changes were coming have made it significantly more so The changes will increase the work that companies are required to do to maintain certification which seems extremely counter intuitive in terms of trying to encourage more construction product manufacturers to really engage with the sustainability agenda The danger is that BES 6001 loses its credibility as an effective framework with large manufacturers retaining it only as a box ticking exercise for various BRE initiatives such as BREEAM and smaller companies struggling to see
