The industry-wide EPD is the product group benchmark to which product-specific EPDs can be compared. All life cycle data included in the Sustainable Minds® Transparency Reports [EPD]™ is third-party verified by Ecoform, LLC. SM Transparency Reports provide the technical information required in EPDs and bring that data to life by telling the natural stone sustainability story across the product life cycle.

As a single-ingredient, natural material, that emits no VOCs,
it is also a healthy choice for interior spaces. Its inherent durability allows stone to perform impeccably in commercial and residential applications, interior or exterior. Another key sustainable attribute of natural stone is its ability to be refinished and recycled with endless opportunities for reuse after it’s initial service life is complete. Throughout history we’ve seen natural stone used in iconic structures symbolizing strength and permanence. New materials strive to mimic its beauty, but genuine natural materials connect us with our planet and its future in a unique and undeniable way.
