We are a traditional brickmaker, based in the Cotswolds and taking our clay from an adjacent quarry that is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). In view of these industrial and environment issues around us we feel a considerable responsibility to pay particular attention to the Environment and Sustainability. We don't just care about these matters - we do something about them. Here are some of the many means we practice:-
  • We have held the BS EN ISO 14001:2004 for the past three years, complying with its environmental management systems for the manufacture and provision of facing bricks - less than 1% of UK businesses achieve this prestigious award
  • Our bricks have an A+ rating awarded by the Building Research Establishments (BRE) green Guide
  • They have been given an Ecopoint rating of just 1.07, cradle to gate. (BRE)
  • They can achieve all levels of the code for Sustainable Homes and fulfil all requirements of part L 2010
  • We comply with an Integrated Pollution Prevention Control Permit
  • We have decreased our landfill waste over the last three years
  • All our brick packaging is now 100% recyclable
  • Approximately 75% of our sales are delivered within an 80 mile radius of the works
  • We participate in the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme, constantly monitoring total carbon emissions
  • We have also participated in the Climate Change Levy for the last ten years
  • We have also been successfully assessed according to the Climate Change Levy and CICS verification and certification for the last ten years.
