Gold Standard for Roofing Firm

Member Article

As part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability, Russell Roof Tiles, the headquarters of Burton on Trent, was recently awarded Gold status by the Supply Chain Sustainability School (SCSS).

The pioneering manufacturer of pitched roof tiles has previously won the Silver Award and has been working with the organization since its inception.

Launched in 2012, the Supply Chain Sustainability School is a multi-award-winning initiative that represents a common approach to addressing sustainability within supply chains. With over 50,000 users, the school provides free hands-on learning and support for the UK built environment through sustainability training, networking, e-learning modules, tailored assessments and online resources.

The aim of the organization is to provide in-service training to those who work in or want to work in the built environment. The school covers all aspects of the built environment and focuses on five main themes: sustainability, offsite, BIM, Lean building and management.

Mark Parsons Technical Director says: “Described by the school as an ‘outstanding achievement’, our SCSS Gold status is the highest level we can achieve and is a major accreditation, recognizing our work with the major national homebuilders and construction companies .”

The SCSS is funded in part by CITB and other industry partners, where resources are shared to inspire the UK’s built environment to drive positive change.

In addition to this accolade, Russell Roof Tiles was the first UK roof tile manufacturer to receive an “Excellent” rating for BES 6001 – The Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products, recognizing the company’s commitment to sustainability.

Russell Roof Tiles is a leading independent manufacturer of pitched roof tiles providing products for the best home builders and high profile social housing and commercial projects. The company produces thousands of tiles every week for use on roofs in the UK for all of the UK’s leading home builders, architects and developers.
