sustainability standardOberlin, Ohio—A new course focused on the requirements needed to certify to the Natural Stone Sustainability Standard is now available in the Natural Stone University. The video series provides step-by-step guidance to help quarriers and producers complete the process of certifying to the standard. Participants will receive an overview of the documentation required to achieve each of the 10 sections. They will be able to preview data collection templates and receive useful tips and examples for completing each section properly and efficiently.

The course covers the following sections of the Natural Stone Sustainability Standard:

  • Chemicals
  • Water
  • Land Reclamation & Adaptive Reuse
  • Site Management
  • Transportation
  • Corporate Governance
  • Human Health & Safety
  • Energy
  • Excess Process Materials & Waste

Ownership of the Natural Stone Sustainability Standard transferred to the Natural Stone Institute in 2021. Since then, the Standard has been updated to ensure continued relevance in the green building space. Companies ready to certify to the standard and design teams interested in learning more about the metrics of the standard and how to source sustainably produced natural stone for their projects are encouraged to visit here.
