JJI-Joists’ carbon accounting adds up for CFSH

Environmental sustainability is key to the manufacture of James Jones Timber Systems’ JJI-Joists, and the company’s ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System ensures that JJIs are manufactured with the smallest environmental footprint possible, scoring an A+ in BRE profiles.

Manufactured in the UK, FSC certified and EUTR compliant, JJIs are therefore making a real contribution to sustainable construction and to achieving required levels of Code for Sustainable Homes. With an independently assured carbon accounting model now in place the company can also claim an overall carbon negative footprint.

Business Development Manager Mark Tilston comments:

“Our carbon negative footprint is proving a real positive for our customers, as we can apply it to individual house design and to supply contract volumes, helping clients achieve their “Zero Carbon” construction goals.

“In addition, as part of a supply chain partnership with key clients, our quantified carbon negative status can support and contri

bute to their downstream Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitments.”

James Jones’ carbon accounting complements other generic schemes used to quantify environmental impacts of products, such as BRE environmental profiles.
