LEED Qualified Stone Products

The long-term success of our industry depends on the sustainable sourcing of raw materials for the products you need and use. We are always working find suppliers that minimize negative environmental impact of these products during production and transport. We support certifications like LEED that enhance natural and social systems surrounding that resource.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is changing the way we think about how buildings and communities are planned, constructed, maintained and operated. Leaders around the world have made LEED the most widely used third-party verification for green buildings, with around 1.85 million square feet being certified daily.

LEED works for all buildings, from homes to corporate headquarters, at all phases of development. Projects pursuing LEED certification earn points across several areas that address sustainability issues. Based on the number of points achieved, a project then receives one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum
