Paroc awarded the British certification BES 6001 for Responsible Sourcing

03 Jul 2015
Paroc has been certified with the BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing standard for construction products by Building Research Establishment Limited (BRE). The certification includes all Paroc's European sites for the production of thermal insulation. Paroc is the first mineral wool insulation manufacturer to achieve BES 6001 and was awarded a “Good” rating for its responsible sourcing of materials.

Sustainability is an increasingly important issue within the construction industry. Transparency, including responsibility in the supply chain, is a way to display sustainable operation throughout the industry. BES 6001 certification safeguards manufacturers' credibility while providing reassurance for contractors and building owners, as they meet their requirements for sustainable development.

We aim to continuously improve our operations and ensure high quality in all our processes

“We have always taken our environmental responsibilities very seriously and this certification is one more way of proving our dedication. Responsible sourcing demands show our suppliers that environmental awareness is a prerequisite when cooperating with us", says Beatrice Rantanen, Director of Environment, Health and Safety in Paroc Group.

Paroc’s operating principles guide the actions of all employees and all processes are certified according to current regulations and valid standards. All Paroc manufacturing plants and quarries are certified according to ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. Our Polish plant is also certified according to OSHAS 18001.
