Sustainable construction isn’t just for the landmark projects any more but a major consideration in all projects and we see across industries that sustainable principles make good business sense
Sustainability is no-longer a buzz-word, but a reality for all of us. Sustainable construction isn’t just for the landmark projects any more but a major consideration in all projects and we see across industries that sustainable principles make good business sense. But what does it really mean? And can your choice of steel tube really make a difference?
Sustainability is about the triple bottom line, balancing environmental and societal responsibility with sustainable economic choices. The accepted standard for [responsible sourcing] of construction products, BES 6001, measures this full balance. Tata Steel were one of the first construction product manufacturers to achieve certification to this standard over 10 years ago and all of our steel tube production sites are now fully accredited. To learn more about BES 6001 and responsible sourcing, [click here].
Tata Steel are also leading the way in transparency by making product-specific Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) available across our construction product range. These documents, which detail the environmental impact of producing our products, right from raw materials to the factory gate and beyond, are increasingly required for all sorts of construction projects and in particular where public funding is involved. Tata Steel are the first steel company to be fully certified for producing 3rd-party verified EPDs and you can find those for our structural hollow sections [here].
From steel-making right through to the production of structural hollow sections, we have a fully integrated supply chain. That is why we can be sure that by specifying and using steel tube from Tata Steel, such as our Celsius® range of true hot finished hollow sections, you can be sure of achieving the best, sustainable solution for your next project.
