Six years of gold standard

Kestrel has reported that sustainable sourcing is at the heart of its business after achieving BES 6001 for the sixth year running.

The accreditation means installers, specifiers and distributors can be sure that Kestrel’s fascias, cladding, soffits and trims meet high standards of sustainability.

Kestrel sales and marketing director Owen Thorogood said: “Kestrel has held BES 6001 since 2012. It’s a true ‘gold standard’ in sustainability and shows our customers that they are buying the best, not just in terms of quality fascia, cladding and roofline products, but in our supply chain and manufacturing process.”

The BES 6001 standard scores Kestrel for issues such as material traceability, business ethos, health and safety and waste management within its supply chain. In order to keep the accreditation, Kestrel faces an independent audit every 12 months, and this year managed to improve its score.

Owen said: “While we are proud of having the BES 6001, we are also committed to improving wherever we can. This increased score shows that we are working with a reliable and even more sustainable supply chain of companies that hold themselves to the same high standards as Kestrel.”
