Polyflor, one of the UK's leading commercial and residential vinyl flooring manufacturer is pleased to announce that it has obtained BES 6001 certification, demonstrating compliance with a recognised responsible sourcing scheme as certified by the BRE. Polyflor is the first flooring manufacturer to be awarded BES 6001, notably achieving a Very Good rating (with ratings ascending from Pass; Good; Very Good to Excellent).
Now in its 3rd issue, the BES 6001 framework standard for Responsible Sourcing sets out requirements under three main headings: Organisational Management; Supply Chain Management and Environmental and Social Responsibility Management. To meet the standard, organisations must satisfy certain compulsory elements. In addition, there are higher levels of compliance that can result in a higher performance rating being awarded.
Thomas Rollo, Marketing Manager, comments: This is a significant milestone for Polyflor. We are really pleased to achieve a BES 6001 Very Good rating, improving our overall social and environmental performance, as well as adding third party accreditation to our responsible sourcing claims".
