Flooring manufacturer gets ‘Excellent’ rating

UK commercial and residential vinyl flooring manufacturer Polyflor has become the only flooring manufacturer to achieve an ‘Excellent’ rating for BES 6001 certification, a standard for the Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products as certified by the BRE.

After being the first flooring manufacturer to obtain BES 6001 certification in 2015 with a ‘Very Good’ rating, Polyflor has further improved responsible sourcing procedures at their Whitefield and Riverside manufacturing facilities to successfully achieve the highest possible ‘Excellent’ rating.

Steve Mulholland, manufacturing director, said: “We’re incredibly proud to have improved our BES 6001 rating to ‘Excellent’ this year, and to be leading the way in our industry as the first flooring manufacturer to achieve this important responsible sourcing standard. It has taken dedication and hard work from the Polyflor team to ensure that the economic, social and environmental impacts of our business are handled in the most ethical way. This standard is far ranging, encompassing many facets and departments of the business. We’re delighted to have reached this milestone in our commitment to sustainable development and we will continue to look for ways to make further progress.”
