Responsible Sourcing

One-day course organized by the Institute of Quarrying at its head office in Nottingham

WITH greater focus being placed on ensuring raw materials are produced responsibly and sustainably, the Institute of Quarrying will be holding a one-day course on Thursday 29 January 2015 at its head offices in Nottingham, providing a comprehensive understanding of responsible sourcing.

The day will help participants to take into account social and environmental considerations, whilst reducing the impact throughout the supply chain and promoting responsible sourcing practice within their business.


The course is targeted specifically at operational managers, procurement managers, environmental managers, sustainability professionals or anyone who has a responsibility for ensuring the sustainable operation of a business.

During the day, participants will be provided with in-depth coverage of: responsible sourcing standards; emerging and established approaches; organizational responsibility; supply chain management; and social and environmental issues.

Additional areas covered will include: how to develop a responsible sourcing policy; mapping out supply chain certifications; the link between responsible sourcing and sustainable procurement; a carbon footprint for aggregates; resource efficiency; community engagement; staff training and development; and business ethics.

The course will be delivered by the leading independent consultancy in this area, Responsible Solutions, who bring with them a proven track record of assisting companies with their responsible sourcing certification to the BRE BES 6001 Framework Standard for the Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products, together with consultancy and data-verification services.

Open to all who wish to attend, current members of the Institute are eligible for a special discounted rate of £150+VAT per person, whilst the price for non-members is £175+VAT.
