Kingspan Insulated Panels’ continual commitment to responsible business practises has been recognised with the achievement of BES 6001: Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products certification.
Developed by BRE Global, the standard provides an exacting framework of issues manufacturers must address to ensure responsible sourcing of construction materials. This includes organisational governance and supply chain management, in addition to environmental and social elements.
All wall and roof panels manufactured at Kingspan Insulated Panel’s Holywell and Sherburn manufacturing facilities have been certified to BES 6001 ‘Very Good’, with particular success in the Greenhouse Gas and Resource Use categories of the scoring table. This provides clear assurance that the products are constructed from raw materials which meet the highest levels of responsible sourcing practice. Additionally, the BES 6001 certification means that the Kingspan Insulated Panel products can also contribute towards the award of credits within BREEAM assessments.
Phil Smith, Managing Director at Kingspan Insulated Panels, commented on the achievement: “It is becoming increasingly important for businesses to be able to demonstrate responsible practise in all aspects of their work. We are immensely proud to see our products meet the BES 6001 standard and, using the feedback from the process, we are looking forward to further develop our approach.”
