Responsible Sourcing

Tegral are rated “Excellent” to BES 6001. Adoption of the BES 6001 Framework Standard for Responsible Sourcing enables us to take a more responsible and sustainable approach to the sourcing of the materials that go into making our products. The BRE standard BES 6001 has been published to enable construction product manufacturers, like Tegral, to ensure and then prove that their products have been made with constituent materials that have been responsibly sourced.

Cement suppliers are chosen for their proximity to factories in order to minimise transport distances. Wood cellulose for fibre cement production is sourced from eco-certified plantations (FSC & PEFC). Timber used in our pallets are sourced from FSC managed forests, and wherever possible, recyclable cardboard and plastics are used for banding, interleaves, bags and boxes.
