Stone Italiana issues its third Sustainability Report and confirms 21% reduction in direct CO2 emissions
Stone Italiana, the leading-edge quartz and composite surface manufacturer, has published its third annual Sustainability Report. The report acts as ongoing public proof of the company’s commitment to the environment and a more conscious way of doing business.
- Direct CO2 emissions – reduced by 21%
- Net profits – 7% increase YOY
- Recovered waste within the business – increased to 83%
- Recycled raw materials – continues to represent 11% of total purchased
- Electricity – 412,393 kWh produced from their own renewable sources
- Cosmolite® – continued push of their new material made from 100% recycled minerals
The third Stone Italiana Sustainability Report records the company’s focus on its green, digital, welfare and social responsibilities; maintaining the level of recycled raw materials used at 11%, an increase in the recycling of its own waste to 83%, the introduction of new welfare facilities for their staff, and an investment in cyber security and digitalisation.
Stone Italiana has long adhered to an internal Green Vision and since 2020, Stone Italiana has focused on promoting its innovative new material Cosmolite® – a high-tech slab material made from recycled inert minerals. The inert materials are 100% recycled pre-consumer minerals other than quartz and the resin part of the polymeric binder originates from renewable vegetable sources obtained from non-Genetically Modified (non-GM) and Identity-Preserved (IP) plants.
Their Green Vision has also driven the company to continually innovate and focus on increasing the levels of recycled materials across all their products, on creating products that are low VOC and safe for food, and on reducing the company’s overall carbon footprint through the installation of photovoltaics and grid economisers installed at their manufacturing sites.
