For over 100 years, Brett has embraced its corporate and social responsibilities to customers, the community and to the environment. Brett is a business proud of its independent status, strong values, and a real, tangible passion for a sustainable future.

With that philosophy firmly in place, we continue to work to reduce our impact on the environment, minimising our energy usage and maximising the recyclability of our materials; developing product solutions and services to enhance the built environment and the lives of the people who use it.

Working with Brett Landscaping enables the creation of sustainable developments. Particularly those projects that have been commissioned under the Code for Sustainable Homes or the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method.

BRE Green Guide

The BRE Green Guide to Specification provides an independent assessment and endorsement of the law for the environmental impact of construction materials. Materials and components are assessed in terms of their environmental impacts, across their entire life cycles. The guide provides easy-to-use guidance on how to make the best environmental choices when selecting construction materials and components.

The information helps specifiers to design, construct and manage buildings to reduce environmental impacts. These rankings are presented on an A+ to E scale, based on life cycle assessments (LCA), using environmental profiles methodology. The guide covers a range of generic building types and elements.

Most Brett products are top rated, enabling you to specify our hard landscaping systems with the confidence of achieving an A or A+ Green Guide rating. In turn, this positively contributes when constructing specifications using BREEAM to assess the sustainability characteristics of the structure and its hard landscaping.
