Caesarstone is not just our go-to for gorgeous, long-lasting kitchen surfaces, but also an advocate for sustainability, prioritising care for the environment and conservation of natural resources.
When designing your kitchen with sustainability in mind, start by looking at the foundations of the space—the floors, the walls, the cabinets and the countertops. Despite making up such a large portion of your home interiors, the impact of these surfaces on the environment is often overlooked.
For a more sustainable kitchen that goes beyond energy-saving appliances and lifestyle essentials, source countertops from brands that make an effort to protect the environment in their production cycle, like surface brand Caesarstone. Specialising in quartz countertops for an elegant and long-lasting kitchen, here’s how Caesarstone keeps kitchen surfaces sustainable all the way through.
Responsible sourcing and safe workplaces
By choosing their suppliers with care, Caesarstone ensures that their surfaces meet high sustainability standards while also being beautiful and extra well-made for extended durability. The brand also avoids any materials red-listed by the International Living Future Institute, ensuring the health of both people and the environment.
Ongoing testing, checking, monitoring and site visits also mean that their practices are always improving, sustainable practices are in place and workers are treated fairly. For instance, did you know that Caesarstone’s worldwide education and training programs like Master of Stone already achieved 72% fewer workplace injuries (LTI) between 2018 to 2020?
Many of their ongoing projects are also dedicated to reducing the use of silica, styrene and acetone in production facilities.
Recycled materials and conserving energy
Not only are two of Caesarstone’s colours made from up to 40% recycled materials, but the brand is also in the process of establishing safe and efficient ways to reuse and recycle surfaces at the end of their lifespan in order to minimise waste.
Reducing energy consumption is another big priority, with a 4% reduction in 2020 and the goal to reach a 10% reduction in energy consumption by 2025. Caesarstone’s water use has similarly dropped by 24% per slab since 2015, with a commitment to lowering it by another 10% by 2025.
The brand’s greenhouse gas emissions were down 12% in 2018 and reduced by another 5% in 2019. Thanks to this, all of Caesarstone’s surfaces are GREENGUARD-certified!
The new Pebbles Collection
An extension of Caesarstone’s sustainable practices, meet the brand’s most environmentally friendly collection to date: the Pebbles Collection! With four freshly launched non-porous, hardwearing quartz surfaces, this is the perfect collection for an eco-friendly kitchen.
The surfaces in the Pebbles Collection are highly tactile and inspired by nature, evoking the nuances of our natural environment with subtle, organic patterns that effortlessly bring the outdoors in.
