What is Eco-Reinforcement?

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 Standard was developed by a consortium of reinforcing steel producers and fabricators, in collaboration with BRE Global and a wide range of external stakeholders, to identify the priority areas of the sector and work towards consistent performance measurement and improvement. Participating mills, fabricators and external stakeholders now form the Scheme Council of Eco-Reinforcement Ltd, a company established to develop, manage and progress the Eco-Reinforcement standard and certification scheme.
