EcoBuild


EcoBuild is the world’s biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment. Stone Federation has had a presence at this event for the last four years and our aim is to highlight the sustainable credentials of natural stone and showcase the breadth of applications and innovative products available.


The next EcoBuild event is due to take place at ExCeL in London between 20-22 March 2012.


Stone Federation represented the natural stone industry at this 2011's Ecobuild event at ExCeL. The event, held on 1st-3rd March, attracted more than 35,000 design and construction professionals from across the UK and beyond.


The Stone Federation stand was the hub of the Stone Zone, a joint initiative between Stone Federation and Ecobuild. Our aim was to highlight the sustainable credentials of natural stone and showcase the breadth of applications and innovative products available.


Visitors were invited to the stand to discuss issues on sustainability; however a large number of visitors with such diverse questions as training, membership and technical advice were also welcomed.


The Stone Federation's Stone Sustainability Statement was made available along with some extracts from BRE Ltd's Green Guide, available to view in full at www.thegreenguide.org.uk.


Leaflets available at the show explained stone's sustainability credentials - you can download a copy of 'Natural Stone - the oldest sustainable material’ from the Sustainability section.
