BES 6001 Sustainability Approval Extends to Full Parex Range

Parex has now gained independent sustainable materials accreditation for its complete portfolio of advanced construction products.

The UK market leader in construction chemicals has been awarded BES 6001 for the sustainable resourcing of materials used across its complete range, having previously held accreditation for a selection of its core products since 2014.

The recognition demonstrates a holistic approach, corporate social responsibility and ethical management of the environment throughout the supply chain.

The approval process involved a wide range of criteria, particularly concerning responsible sourcing of all materials. This includes provision of documentary evidence of compliance with key European standards, throughout the whole supply chain particularly around quality, environmental compliance, and health & safety.

Additionally sustainability, the monitoring of use of chemicals, monitoring of greenhouse gas production and limiting production of waste were all taken into account.

Parex sees the approval as a further endorsement of its approach not only to ensuring the quality of products, but also providing customers with assurance that they are manufactured sustainably with respect for the environment.

In addition to the latest endorsement for specific products through BES 6001, the UK Parex operation already holds a number of company-wide, third-party approvals including ISO9001 for its Quality Systems, ISO14001 for Environmental Systems and OHSAS18001 for Quality, Health and Safety.
