We consider a holistic view of Sustainability, encapsulating wider environmental, social and
economic aspects and strive for sustainable development.
We challenge the business-as-usual approach and through working collaboratively with our staff, clients and supply chain, we commit to high sustainability performance.

Sourcing of Materials
Wherever possible, we procure the glass used in our products from suppliers certified with responsible
sourcing standards such as BES 6001 or ISO 14001.
These certifications allow suppliers to demonstrate their environmental and sustainability commitments and performance. Benefits include:
Minimising risk within our product supply chain
Securing additional BREEAM credits or LEED points for projects
Demonstrating to stakeholders that we source products responsibly
Improving overall social and environmental performance
- Demonstrating continuous improvement related to environmental impacts
- Delivering a route to benchmark and achieve continuous improvement regarding the sustainability of construction products
We only procure FSC® certified timber products with full Chain of Custody certifications. We also procure FSC® recycled printer paper for use in our head office.
We continue to explore opportunities to further improve our sustainable procurement processes.
We regularly support projects undergoing BREEM, LEED and WELL Building sustainability assessments
By providing robust, reliable and complete evidence for assessment, we contribute to the award of credits/points for these schemes, helping projects achieve their assessment goals.
Examples include: certifications for use of low VOC sealants, responsible sourcing of materials, transport and delivery information etc.
