Holcim Romania, one of the most important cement, concrete and aggregates producers, recently obtained the BES 6001 certification regarding the Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products, being the first company in the world, except UK, to have this external recognition, a press release informs. Through the BRE Environmental and Sustainability standard BES 6001, Holcim Romania supports its customers to build green constructions, which can be certified through the Green Buildings Certification Schemes, such as BREEAM (Great Britain) and LEED (United States). The BES 6001 certification proves that Holcim products – cement, concrete and aggregates – have been produced in a social and environmental responsible way, from the procurement of the constituent materials and the management of the fabrication processes, to delivery. The management of social, health, safety and environment aspects were key elements of this certification process. Achieving and maintaining a „Very Good” certification level on BES 6001 reinforces the ongoing commitment of Holcim Romania to sustainable development.
