Best environmental practices in natural stone industry studied

Finnish Natural Stone Association together with Geological Survey of Finland and Finish Environmental Agency has carried out a project where the best environmental practices (BEP) in natural stone industry were studied.

The aim of this project was to provide the basic information on the extraction of natural stone in Finland, especially the related environmental issues, to benefit both operators and the supervisory authorities. The results are now published in a public report.

The study was financed by Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (Southwest Finland), K.H. Renlund Foundation, Geological Survey of Finland, Finnish Environment Institute, and the Finnish Natural Stone Association.
