When we extract and process natural stones, we always aim to maintain a good ecological balance. We get 70% of the electricity we need from our own sustainable energy sources. We also work to restore the natural environment in our quarries and provide training to our employees on environmental matters. The SSG group of companies is a founding member of the Altmühltal Environmental Pact, which focuses on protecting species and creating habitats for wildlife.
Natural stones like SOLNHOFENER Natural Stone and MAXBERG® Jura Limestone are free from pollutants. Limestones are formed from biomass and are completely free from radiation. Moreover, they last a very long time and are very durable. While many building materials tend to look worse with time, real stones often become even more charming as they develop a natural patina. Additionally, most natural stones can be cleaned or polished to maintain their appearance.
A study conducted by PE International, a respected group of sustainability experts, confirms that natural stone facades have an excellent environmental impact.
