Stone Italiana release new sustainability report
Stone Italiana, represented by Italian Luxury Surfaces in the UK, has published its third sustainability report. It details the company's commitment to its green, digital, welfare and social responsibilities by maintaining the level of recycled raw materials used at 11%, increasing the recycling of its own waste to 83 per cent, the introduction of new welfare facilities for their staff and an investment in cyber security and digitalisation.
Stone Italiana has its own internal initiative known as Green Vision and has promoted its own recycled material, Cosmolite since 2020 which comes which comes in slab format. It is produced using inert materials that are 100% recycled pre-consumer minerals and, other than quartz and the resin part of the polymeric, the binder originates from renewable vegetable sources obtained from non-Genetically Modified (non-GM) and Identity-Preserved (IP) plants.
This Green Vision has also driven the company to continually innovate and focus on increasing the levels of recycled materials across its portfolio with products that are low VOC and safe for foodpreparation, and on reducing the company’s overall carbon footprint through the installation of photovoltaics and grid economisers installed at their manufacturing sites.
