In our entire life cycle, Caesarstone® nurtures symbiotic sustainability.
When it comes to taking responsibility towards the environment and society, our products and practices create a connection with nature from the heart of the home, and you get to care for the planet every day.
Caesarstone has been creating countertops from natural materials for over 35 years. Our first certified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is an important milestone in our sustainability journey and helps guide us – and our customers – to understand the environmental impacts of our products in a clearer, transparent manner.
The EPD is an important step in our sustainability vision and forges our path towards a more sustainable and healthy future.
All Caesarstone surfaces comply with American GEI (GREENGUARD Environmental Institute) certification which primarily verifies that Caesarstone’s products meet the most stringent indoor air emission standards.
GREENGUARD Gold Standard, 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.
Caesarstone has added a third-party verified Declare label to the majority our interior products so that you can know what is in the products you covet for your next project.
Our ingredients are listed on Declare Labels that are verified and approved by an external third party.
For full transparency, you can trust what’s precisely inside most of our products, which are 100% fit for use in Living Building Challenge (LBC) projects, LEED buildings, and International Living Future Institute (ILFI) initiatives.
Endorsed by the National Health and Safety Foundation (NSF) in accordance with international NSF 51 sanitary standards, Caesarstone surfaces are qualified for installation in hospitals, restaurants, hotels and more.
NSF International is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization that is the world leader in standards development, product certification, education and risk-management for public health and safety.
For 60 years, NSF has been committed to public health, safety, and protection of the environment.
Caesarstone surfaces are nonporous and prevent the growth of surface mold and bacteria due to the use of quartz as a key ingredient.
Developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is a green building rating system, which rates buildings of all types (residential, commercial, new and renewed). Based on the number of points achieved, a project then receives one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum. Products (like Caesarstone quartz slabs) can contribute points to a project based on different parameters.
The Health Product Declaration (HPD)® Open Standard* necessitates a 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.
As a global leader in independent certification and verification of environmental and sustainable stewardship, SCS Global Services has developed internationally recognized standards and certification programs to achieve the highest environmental performance and social accountability level.
Caesarstone 3100 Jet Black and 6011 Intense White made from up to 40% pre-consumer recycled materials (mirrors, glass, high-quality reclaimed postproduction waste from fabrication processes), are SCS certified for recycled content
Created by the Green Building Council of Australia, the Green Star rating system is designed to evaluate the environmental design and performance of buildings, and to drive the adoption of green building practices through market-based solutions.
