Since the beginning and as the first aircrete manufacturer to be awarded the Carbon Trust Standard, H+H has focused close attention on the energy efficiency of its manufacturing processes.
H+H was the first company to be awarded a ‘very good’ rating in BES 6001:2008 Standard for the Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products.
June 2019 saw this BES 6001 rating upgraded to ‘excellent’, a further demonstration to customers and other stakeholders that H+H is an ethical manufacturer committed to sustainability.
This was an especially proud moment for everyone at H+H, particularly those who work within our factories at Borough Green in Kent, and Pollington I and Pollington 2 in East Yorkshire. Within our factories, environmental considerations are applied to every aspect of their set-up. This includes the installation of a combined heat and power plant, an advanced rainwater management system and a wind turbine designed to deliver clean energy directly to our Pollington factory.
All water used at the Pollington 2 site comes from either a local canal or a lagoon that collects rainwater from the whole site. At Borough Green, waste water from the manufacturing process is recycled, significantly reducing the quantity of water that must be drawn from mains supplies.
