ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products has been certified under the BRE Environmental & Sustainability Standard BES 6001, a responsible sourcing certification for the UK construction market, demonstrating the division’s commitment to sustainable sourcing. It covers the entire portfolio of ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products, including angles, channels, merchant bars, rails, sections, sheet piles, rebar, construction bar and wire.
Developed by the UK-registered research organisation BRE (Building Research Establishment), the standard BES 6001 requires manufacturers for the construction industry to prove that their products are made with responsibly sourced materials. A process of third-party independent assessment, covering organisational governance, supply chain management and various environmental and social aspects, is used to verify that manufacturers meet the required criteria. Manufacturers must also demonstrate the sustainable operations of their raw material suppliers.
