Ibstock Brick Receives Responsible Sourcing Standard

September 27, 2010

Ibstock recently announced that it has become the first UK brick manufacturer to be awarded the “very good” rating in its recent factory assessment for the BES 6001 responsible sourcing standard. The BES 6001 standard demonstrates that a building material is sustainable and has been produced in a way that has minimized its environmental impact.

“Ibstock has always been at the forefront when it comes to sustainable development and the environment,” said John Richards, Sales and Marketing director. “As well as being the first brickmaker to achieve the environmental management standard BS EN 14001, we were also the first to publish an annual Environmental Report, which is now in its 10th year.”
