Accreditation for responsible sourcing

William Hare Limited has now achieved certification under BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products.

In order to pass the certification process, William Hare had to demonstrate that the raw materials and constituent products within its supply chain have been responsibly sourced in line with the UK Governments policies for sustainable development and a lower carbon future.

The certification process was undertaken by BRE Global, an organisation with a 90-year history of promoting innovation and best practices within the construction industry. The three main specific areas of assessment in which the company had to demonstrate clear capabilities were:
– Organisational Management
– Supply Chain Management
– Positive approach to Environmental and Social Issues

Under the certification process William Hare has achieved a Very Good rating, which means that clients can claim additional BREEAM points for the structures supplied and erected by the company.

The award of this certification underlines WHL’s proven track record in the realm of environmental sustainability, and the fact that it has contributed to many innovative projects, such as Media City UK in Salford, Greater Manchester which was one of the first projects built to the BREEAM Communities methodology.
