Brickmaker Ibstock rewarded for excellent responsible product sourcing
Ibstock has become the first brick producer to achieve an excellent performance rating for responsible sourcing of construction products.
The Leicestershire-based brick manufacturer and building supplier has been recognised under the industry-wide Construction Products Certification (CPC) scheme.
In its latest assessment of Ibstock’s approach and methodology the CPC found that the clay bricks, Special Shapes and masonry assemblies produced and supplied by the company conform to the BES 6001: Issue 3 Framework Standard for Responsible Sourcing.
At a time when the construction industry is setting out its sustainability vision to meet the Government’s Construction 2025 target to reduce emissions and empower sustainable construction solutions, Ibstock’s latest accreditation bolsters the company’s position as the industry-leading brickmaker.
Andrew Halstead-Smith, group marketing manager, Ibstock, said: “To be the first UK brick manufacturer to achieve the ‘Excellent’ performance rating under the CPC scheme, marks a significant achievement.
"As industry leaders, we take our environmental and sustainability responsibilities extremely seriously, and it is gratifying that the hard work put in across all areas of our operations has been recognised in this way.
"This offers our customers the assurance that the products and solutions they buy from us have been manufactured to the very highest standards and the upmost care taken when it comes to the environmental impact of our production.”
