Responsible sourcing of construction products

The Home Quality Mark One, Technical Manual SD239, England, Scotland & Wales, published by BRE in 2018, suggests that ‘responsible sourcing of construction products’ is:

‘A graded scale to reflect the rigour of the certification scheme used to demonstrate responsible sourcing, forming the basis for awarding credits in this issue.’

‘Refer to Guidance Note 18 available in the Resources section of the BREEAM website for an up-to-date table of responsible sourcing certification schemes recognised by BRE Global Ltd for the purposes of HQM assessments.’
