‘What can we do for you’, sounds much better than ‘what we do’. So, when you talk to Brett about inspiring outside spaces, we’ll ensure everything is made that little bit easier, a little bit more exciting – and with a straightforward attitude.

We are a trusted and established independent business. We understand our customers, their aspirations and how we can enable possibilities to become reality.

Ethical Trading Policy

At Brett, we’re known for our high-quality products and impeccable customer service, but more importantly, we’re recognised for our credibility, integrity and trustworthiness.

We’re committed to upholding the highest ethical standards, and as such, we actively monitor our supply chain with a view to ensuring that our suppliers are working towards applying the ETI Base Code to their own suppliers, to provide a moral code for the treatment of workers across the World.

We work with the TFT Responsible Stone Programme (RSP) to help improve both working conditions and best manage our environmental impacts. TFT works closely with its members to ensure that sites within their supply chains meet the RSP Guidelines. These Guidelines require sites to ensure that:

  • Child labour is not used
  • There is no forced and bonded labour
  • Ethical recruitment practices are used
  • The health and safety of workers is protected
  • Employment contracts are provided to all workers
  • Wages meet minimum requirements or national norms as a minimum
  • Working hours meet legal requirements and are not excessive
  • The company respects diversity within its workforce
  • Harassment and abuse are not tolerated
  • There is clear and readily accessible access to remedy
  • Accommodation is safe and hygienic
  • Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining is respected

TFT and Brett collaborate to help our business reflect these Guidelines within our non-UK based supply chains. This route currently covers around 91% of the factories that supply natural stone products within our supply chain, and will provide increasing transparency at the quarry level, regular site assessments as well as capacity building with our suppliers.

Ultimately, we plan to collaborate with TFT across all of our natural stone supply chains including Europe, India, China and Brazil to help improve working conditions and minimise the environmental impacts for the long-term benefit of everyone.

Responsible Sourcing

The Brett Group has a long and proud history of environmental and social responsibility

initiatives in the UK and within our global supply chains – this is reflected in our ‘built on relationships’ strapline.

Key examples of this commitment was being one of the first in the landscaping industry to obtain independent certification for ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and the BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing standard.

Our work has also gained numerous business awards over the years for example for the restoration of our UK quarries, some of which have attained ‘site of special scientific interest’ status thereby preserving amenity for generations to come.

Brett Landscaping also hold BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products certification to ‘Very Good’ which can further assist when designing under BREEAM. Please click on the link below to view our latest certification:
