Environmental Policy

Mandarin Stone strives towards a healthy balance between our company’s economy and the world’s ecology. We are increasingly aware of the demand for sustainable materials, the impact of the carbon footprint and green issues relating to our planet. The long term durability of stone, porcelain and ceramic means that replacement costs are reduced and the lifetime cost is actually less than that associated with more inexpensive floor and wall coverings. Stone is inert and releases little, if any emission, unlike carpet, particularly important for those with allergies or respiratory ailments.

Overseas Suppliers

We have compiled documentation from all our overseas stone suppliers, to prove they are legally certificated and have ISO systems in place to be compliant with their country’s environmental and health and safety laws. We visit most of our suppliers’ factories or quarries and confirm they are compliant with regard to their employees’ safety together with their respect for their surrounding environment.

Recycling and Reusing Packaging

We are totally committed to recycling or reusing packaging products from our imported goods and are continually looking at ways to minimise any environmental impacts with regard to our company’s use of raw materials, energy, water and logistics. Mandarin Stone will always place a very high priority on their duty of care to protect the environment for future generations.
