The Ethical Stone Register continues to welcome natural stone companies as more and more specifiers are looking for ethical assurances about the materials they choose.
Developed in response to The Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the issues of sourcing materials responsibly, The Ethical Stone Register will allow natural stone companies, whatever their size, to offer a responsible and manageable ethical sourcing solution to their clients.
Family run businesses, Lovell Stone Group and Stone Age Ltd are the latest companies to join the register and they now sit alongside Airelimestones, Albion Stone, Amarestone, Burlington Stone, Harrison Goldman, Hutton Stone, Johnsons Wellfield, Lovell Stone Group, LSI Stone, Stone Age Private, Strata Stones, Szerelmey and Talasey Group.
Steve Turner, Managing Director of stone supplier and Ethical Stone Register member, Amarestone commented that: “It has become an issue that must not be ignored and will trigger even greater demand for ethically and responsibly sourced stone. Major players in the construction industry will want to avoid the potential embarrassment of unsavoury practices in their supply chain. The Ethical Stone Register will be the safe source for natural stone, and I can foresee that it will become a key resource for the specifier.”
