Stone Italiana Green Vision
Since 1979 Stone Italiana has been dedicated to excellence in terms of design, quality and sensitivity towards issues such as environment, workers’ safety and health.
This is the concept on which Stone Italiana bases the application of an integrated Management System for Quality, Environment and Occupation Safety, complying with ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, OHSAS 18001:2007 standards, which is the result of a number of responsability actions taken by the Company.
Its manufacturing process and continuous research efforts have allowed Stone Italiana to recycle and give value to industrial solid waste such as glass, mirror and granite. Now, more than ever, the Company is experimenting with combinations featuring different materials, with the final aim of recycling them. Furthermore, the amount of polymeric binder contained in the product is only 7 to 8 % and part of it comes from renewable vegetable sources obtained from non-Genetically Modified and Identity-Preserved plants.
Stone Italiana products are safe for man and environment as they do not release VOCs (harmful Volatile Organic Compounds). Thus, Stone Italiana is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality and GREENGUARD Children & Schools (USA) certified. Stone Italiana products are naturally BACTERIOSTATIC and “food contact proof”. They are suitable for household use (kitchen countertops) and food preparation areas. Stone Italiana products are FDA (USA Food & Drugs Administration) approved to meet the NSF 51 standard.SUSTAINABLE RESPONSIBILITY
