Natural Stone: A Product
From the Earth, For the Earth

At Polycor, sustainability is in our DNA. Our products are 100% natural, organic, and created by Mother Nature herself!

 

While the environment is a major element of sustainability, the origin of the stone you buy is just as important. Locally quarried natural stone has its advantages and the impact you have on your community is of utmost importance. With 2030 being identified as the crucial “tipping point” to stop catastrophic climate change, every effort makes a difference. This is why Polycor Inc aims to be carbon neutral by the end of 2025.

 

We recognize that progress requires not just a bold goal, but the very first step is taking responsibility for our carbon footprint. We are looking forward to the journey, but most of all, we are looking forward to a net-zero carbon future.

 

We talk the talk, but we also love to walk the walk! Our internal network of 15 Sustainability Champions is constantly looking to improve our overall performance and innovate in several central areas to reduce and offset our carbon footprint. Here are 5 key action items that will be our main focus over the course of the next several years.
Making it a company-wide priority.
Increasing the use of renewable energy.
Reducing our dependency on fossil fuels.
Developing our own carbon sink.
Improving our environmental practices beyond carbon.

 

Polycor is committed to leaving a better world to future generations. A Naturally Sustainable™ world.

Our Involvement

Natural Stone Sustainability Standard

This accreditation helps architects, builders and stone specifiers ensure that the stones they use are produced in an economically, environmentally and socially responsible manner.

Developed by the Natural Stone Council (NSC) and accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), this rigorous, voluntary standard establishes criteria to determine how sustainably natural dimension stone is extracted and manufactured.

Look for the Certified symbol for more information on Polycor’s certified quarries and plants.
