Less than two months after it received its GreenGuard Certification, CaesarStone, an original quartz surface manufacturer, is expanding its eco-friendly partnerships even further by joining and becoming a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
The USGBC is a non-profit organization committed to expanding sustainable
building practices. It has developed Leadership in Energy and Environmental
Design (LEED), a third-party certification program and a U.S. nationally
accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of
high-performance green buildings. This makes CaesarStone a natural partner in
advanced projects, built according to green construction practices.
“CaesarStone’s membership in USGBC is the latest example of our continuous
commitment to providing environmentally responsible products and to support
organizations that share our commitment to the environment,” said Ed Rogers,
CaesarStone’s Director of Business Development.
With the annual U.S. market in green building products and services increasing
to $60 billion by 2010, CaesarStone’s 20-year commitment to the environment is
not only the right choice, but also a smart one, reports CaesarStone.
