Sustainability Initiatives

The Natural Stone Institute has made important strides in positioning natural stone as a solution for projects with green building goals through the Natural Stone Sustainability Standard (ANSI/NSI 373), development of transparency documentation, and educating our industry on how to talk about this topic with clients.



“We believe in the power of aligning natural stone products with the green building movement and are proud to be certified to the Natural Stone Sustainability Standard.  The Natural Stone Institute is the only organization with the resources we need to achieve relevance and recognition within the market.”

-Darrell Petit, Stony Creek Quarry


“I value the Natural Stone Institute’s sustainability efforts, as they have made natural stone a desirable solution in satisfying green building goals. They have provided educational materials for the design community and are developing transparency documentation that will quantify the low embodied carbon of natural stone materials.”

-Celi Monteiro, Everest Marble
