Stone Federation is passionate about the natural stone industry playing its part in delivering a more carbon and environmentally-responsible built environment and ensuring an ethical and responsible supply chain.
As part of this, we have launched a revised version of our Sustainability Statement which all members are asked to sign up to.
Stone Federation members are encouraged to:
Be proactive in implementing sustainability, ethical sourcing, environmental, and carbon reduction policies within their business.
Measure their carbon, environmental, and supply chain impact including business operations, material extraction and production.
Be transparent about their carbon, environmental, and supply chain impact and the ways in which they are working to reduce this and ensure that the information is accessible to clients.
Be specific in targeting areas where they can reduce the carbon and environmental impacts of their business. These target areas should be at least in line with the Government’s own Net Zero Carbon targets for the construction industry (78% reduction in emissions by 2038, 100% reduction in emissions by 2050).
Continue to measure and assess their progress against their carbon, environmental, and supply chain goals and adjust practices where necessary.
