What are the Caesarstone environmental policies?

At Caesarstone, it is our commitment to ensure minimal impact on the environment. Sustainable practices across our departments is a priority.

We aim to create durable, low-maintenance products that support healthier environments and better use of material resources:

  • Low Maintenance - Our surfaces require minimal maintenance and significantly reduce the need for sealants, cleaning materials and detergents.
  • High Performance and Durability - Our surfaces are long-lasting and durable, delivering both improved life cycle costs and additional investment value.
  • Low-emitting Products - Caesarstone surfaces meet stringent product emissions standards and have very little impact on indoor air quality. All Caesarstone products are independently certified by the GREENGUARD Certification, which is part of UL Environment, a business unit of UL (Underwriters Laboratories), as low-emitting surfaces.

Caesarstone works with the leading sustainability organisations in the green building sector as part of its sustainability leadership. Our certifications for our manufacturing sites and products support our customers' needs for green and healthy building products and contribute to green building projects.

  • CE marking indicates conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area. By affixing the CE marking, Caesarstone declares that Caesarstone quartz surfaces meet all the legal requirements for CE marking.
  • ISO 14001 is the international standard for establishing an environmental management system to guide working towards: meeting environmental goals; monitoring compliance activities; investing in tools for enhancing a quality environment; employee and supplier training; health and safety procedures; and establishing efficient production processes.
  • All of Caesarstone’s production plants have a certified Environmental Management System in accord with ISO 14001.
  • GREENGUARD: All Caesarstone quartz surfaces comply with GREENGUARD certification, which verifies that Caesarstone products meet the most stringent indoor air emission standards.
  • GREENGUARD GOLD: All Caesarstone surfaces comply with the GREENGUARD GOLD standard (formerly known as GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification), which evaluates the sensitive nature of school populations combined with the unique building characteristics found in schools, and presents the most rigorous product emissions criteria to date.
  • HPD: The Health Product Declaration (HPD)® Open Standard* necessitates full disclosure of the potential chemicals of concern in products by comparing product ingredients to a set of priority “hazard” lists based on the GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals and additional lists from other government agencies.
  • * The Health Product Declaration® logo is a registered trademark of HPD Collaborative.
  • Developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED ­Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design is an American accredited certification program for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.
