Leading aluminium systems manufacturer, Metal Technology, has been accredited to the BES 6001 Framework Standard for Responsible Sourcing of construction products.

This standard enables construction product manufacturers to ensure, and then prove, that their products have been made with materials that have been responsibly sourced. The standard provides a framework for the organisational governance, supply chain management and environmental and social aspects that must be addressed in order to ensure responsible sourcing.

BES 6001 accreditation affirms and endorses Metal Technology’s sustainability credentials and, taken together with the product quality, the comprehensive testing of systems and existing accreditation to quality standard ISO 9001 and environmental standard ISO 14001, reassures customers that they can specify Metal Technology architectural aluminium systems with confidence in their performance on all levels, structurally, aesthetically and ethically.

Metal Technology’s Managing Director, Calvin Wilson (pictured right) who received the certificate from Leo Tinnelly from the British Standards Institute, commented: “We are delighted to have achieved BES 6001 as a further endorsement of our commitment to sustainability throughout every part of our business.

“Of course, with a business based on aluminium, a one hundred percent recyclable material, we have a head start, however, this latest accreditation demonstrates that sustainability is at the heart of all our business operations, from production to transport and head office operations.”

Metal Technology routinely monitors and manages every aspect of its operations from an environmental impact viewpoint and consistently drives performance improvements. For example, greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced by 9.29kg/tonne of product by utilising solar power, a 6% reduction in emissions per tonne. The in-house transport fleet is also being reformed to reduce emissions and is in the process of being upgraded to lorries with Euro VI emissions class engines.
