Cosentino Awarded Gold Status by Supply Chain Sustainability School
Thanks to its ongoing efforts in sustainable manufacturing and environmental awareness, Cosentino is delighted to have been awarded Gold status by the Supply Chain Sustainability School, which celebrates its 9th birthday this month.
Founded in 2012, the School was born just as the sector started to understand that the growing demand for sustainability can’t be met effectively without significantly upskilling the supply chain. Given the size and complexity of the sector’s supply chain, collaboration was essential and today the school has 125 partners and engages with over 50,000 members from over 15,000 businesses.
Cosentino has always been committed to protecting the environment, and prepares an Environmental Strategy Plan every year, setting out the actions to be taken with a quarterly follow up. As part of this, Cosentino carries out internal and external audits associated with certification processes and legal requirements, with the School supporting in overcoming sustainability challenges by allowing access to relevant learning.

As a result of these commitments, Cosentino has reached several milestones over the past few years, such as the daily reuse of 70.000m3 water, consumption of 100% certified renewable electric energy, and declaring surfaces entirely carbon neutral, such the full Dekton range and Silestone Sunlit Days. Last year, Silestone’s innovative HybriQ+ hybrid formulation was introduced with the Loft collection, with the technology ensuring colours have been manufactured with at least 20% recycled glass and completely with renewable energy and recycled water. The latest Silestone series, Sunlit Days, has also been introduced with this technology as well as a dedication to reforestation projects.
