Responsible Sourcing


Raw material supply chains can have an all-too-easy-to-ignore impact on a business' sustainability performance. The ultimate goal is to source raw materials responsibly. The main whole building environmental assessment tool used in the UK, BREEAM, awards credits for responsible sourcing of building materials.
