MANCHESTER, UK, April 3, 2007 -- Durapipe UK, the leading manufacturer of thermoplastic pipework systems, has been recognized for its achievements in sustainable working practices by being accepted onto the Black Country Business Environment Association Charter, which assesses a company's commitment to environmental responsibility.

Companies wishing to sign up to the charter are visited and assessed by the BCBEA and are awarded different levels -- bronze, silver, gold and platinum -- according to the stage that they are at in terms of their environmental awareness and performance.

Awarded the highest accreditation, the platinum level, Durapipe UK was required to meet a variety of criteria in order to receive the award. During the assessment the manufacturer demonstrated that it enforces a strict environmental policy, has environmental performance indicators in place that reflect key environmental issues, has implemented an environmental management system and achieved certification to ISO 14001.

• Eliminate recyclable wastes going to landfill by the end of 2012
• Measure, manage and reduce electricity consumption
• Maintain ISO 14001 certification
• Re-train all staff in environmental awareness during 2007
