Intertek expands sustainability services to include Eco-Reinforcement certification

London, UK - Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, has been designated as the preferred vendor for Eco-Reinforcement certification by the Eco-Reinforcement Scheme Council.

Eco-Reinforcement is a trademark developed to identify responsibly sourced reinforcing steel, which ensures building and construction specifiers and contractors that they are purchasing reinforcing steel from a supply chain that is pro-actively addressing issues of sustainability. The third-party certification scheme for Eco-Reinforcement has been developed in conjunction with the reinforcing steel industry to comply with Building Research Establishment (BRE) Global’s BES 6001: 2008 Framework Standard for the Responsible Sourcing of Construction products.

Katie Livesey, Sustainability Project Leader at Intertek said: “With Sustainability at the core of our business, we remain dedicated to providing our customers with increased transparency in order to manage risk and resilience, whilst supporting their ability to operate effectively and act responsibly. At Intertek, we are constantly evaluating and improving our Quality Assurance services, in order to develop and implement key programs that generate a positive impact for society and the environment. Our commitment to enable organizations, across a wide range of sectors, to keep ahead of their emerging sustainability requirements is demonstrated by our current suite of sustainability solutions, which now includes Eco-Reinforcement certification.”

Jamie Holling, Chairman and Director of the Eco-Reinforcement Scheme Council said: “The Eco-Reinforcement Scheme Council is very pleased to announce that Intertek is our preferred vendor for Eco-Reinforcement. We appreciate Intertek’s commitment to our goal of continually improving performance within the reinforcing steel sector and we look forward to building a productive relationship as a result of this designation.”
