POLYCOR TO BECOME CARBON NEUTRAL BY END OF 2025
Dear Polycor Customers:
On this year’s global Earth Day, I am very excited to share with you one of the best commitments we have ever made across any of our Polycor brands:
The Polycor Inc. group, including Polycor, Vetrazzo, Rock of Ages, and Swenson Granite Works,
will become carbon neutral by the end of 2025.
As the industry’s leading natural stone quarrier, we are committed to bringing you the very best product possible. Our naturally sustainable stone is already a preferred product for environmentally conscious architects, designers, and homeowners. Now, it is time to make natural stone even better.
Becoming carbon neutral means that our products will have a low carbon impact on the environment. We will reach this goal through industry-leading innovations and improvements in fuel use, an emphasis on renewable energy, waste reduction, and efficiency advancements.
As the world faces escalating environmental crises, we take our responsibilities seriously.
We look forward to the ways that our commitment will inspire change across industries while also enhancing our local communities. This year, for example, we will sponsor a company-wide tree planting campaign. That campaign will not only help capture greenhouse gases that would otherwise pollute the atmosphere, it will also beautify and improve our own local environments.
Thank you for being a valued member of the Polycor family. The benefits this commitment will bring customers like you are motivation enough for us to take on this exciting challenge. Let me personally invite you to follow along with our journey of sustainability online at www.polycor.com/sustainability.
With your continued support, we will continue to be faithful stewards of the beautiful earth that provides us with such sustainable natural stone.
CEO of Polycor Inc.
