Stone is one of the most durable materials you can use for any application. When specified and detailed correctly, our products can last for hundreds of years—resulting in some of the lowest embodied energy of any material.
Developing and maintaining a sustainable operation is an Alcantara Stone Corporation core value that not only affects how we do business, but also shapes our corporate culture.
Stone is a natural resource. However, depending on how it is quarried, processed, transported and used has a significant bearing on the environmental impact for any particular use. Likewise, our foundry and other non-stone operations also benefit from sustainable practices that maximize the utilization of our resources while minimizing energy use.
