Our Values

‘TLC+C’

We work to the four pillars of ‘TLC+C’ (Traceable / Landscape / Communities + Climate / ) which ensures our stone is:

  • Fully TRACEABLE for assured provenance
  • Quarried in a way that limits the long-term impact on the LANDSCAPE
  • Governed by laws that ensure the wellbeing of stone workers and their COMMUNITIES
  • Extracted & transported in ways that minimise the effect on CLIMATE

stone_sourcing3We  visit every quarry we source from –  we don’t rely on third parties to assess the traceability of our stone, but prefer to guarantee professional business practice and ethical standards are upheld by verifying for ourselves.

We are BREEAM accredited and source our stone to BES 6001 standards. See our listing in the BRE GreenBook live here >> GreenBookLive.com

 

Our purpose is clear-cut, we provide innovative stone solutions that avoid activities which do harm to people or the environment.

Ethical_Stone_Clearcut2PROVENANCE

Our stone is fully traceable back to the quarry from which it was cut – small and medium scale quarries that are actively managed to minimise the impact on the environment.  We regularly visit our source quarries and factories to check standards… and  provide a quarry/factory visit service to customers for any of our stone products.

WELLBEING

The wellbeing of quarry and factory workers is of paramount importance to us.  Most of our sources fall under EU law with regards to health & safety at work and go further still, implementing wider social responsibility policies and projects for stone masons and their communities.

SUSTAINABILITY

Much of the stone we supply is either extracted entirely by hand or cut from the quarry face with saw and low impact quarrying techniques that minimises stone wastage. CO2 emissions are kept low with stone processing taking place within or close to the quarries wherever possible and onward transportation rationalised to minimise the environmental impact.
