Saudi Readymix Gets an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for all its Concrete

Saudi Readymix is the first company in Saudi Arabia to receive this certification covering the complete range of its Readymix products in all its factories.

Jan 2020: Saudi Readymix has received Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for its complete Readymix products manufactured across all its 33 factories in Saudi Arabia. The company is the first in Saudi Arabia to obtain such certification in collaboration with BRE, the British Research Establishment.

BRE Global is internationally recognized for its expertise in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). Having worked closely with industry to develop the Green Guide and Environmental Profiles Certification Scheme, BRE has developed a comprehensive EPD Scheme in line with the European standard EN 15804. BRE Global’s certification mark represents quality and illustrates that a product has gone through a rigorous verification process.

EPD is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life-cycle environmental impact of products. EPD’s also include reports on the environmental impact of the extraction phase to the final consumer.

Speaking about this milestone, Managing Director of Saudi Readymix Mr. Mohammed Abu Zaid, said, “At Saudi Readymix, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, and is aligned to our corporate objectives. Committed to environmental protection, the company has continuously introduced many industry-first benchmarks to make our business more plant-friendly through the value chain. We are delighted to announce EPD for all our Readymix Concrete products, another milestone for the industry “.

Saudi Readymix consistently promotes and encourages sustainable construction projects in Saudi Arabia. Over the years, the company has pioneered many initiatives which are today the established best practices for the industry in Saudi Arabia.
