The Natural Stone Council (NSC) has updated its sustainability standard to align with evolving green building programs. Natural Stone Sustainability Standard (ANSI/NSC 373) is intended to certify sustainably produced stone.
“As the building and design market continues to demand greener and more sustainably produced materials, green building programs evolve to meet the rising needs,” says Duke Pointer, executive director of the NSC. “Updates to the natural stone certification reflect the stone industry’s commitment to aligning with evolving green building programs.”
The 2019 updates address issues including water, site management, land reclamation and adaptive use, corporate governance, management of excess process materials, and innovation. Updates also address a wider range in variability of operations, natural stone dimensional deposits, and regulatory requirements across the country.
