Eco-Reinforcement is a third-party certification scheme which assesses and recognises responsibly sourced reinforcing steel products. It has been developed as a sector-specific standard which complies with the requirements of BRE's BES 6001 Framework Standard for the Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products.
The Eco-Reinforcement scheme assesses sustainable impacts throughout the reinforcing steel supply chain i.e. from raw material through to construction site. The certifiable organisations within the supply chain are the steel mill and fabricator. Each receives a rating, and each has responsibilities within the supply chain.
