Marble and sustainable luxury: when the unthinkable becomes reality

Talking about marble often means talking about luxury and extreme elegance, but certainly not about attention to the environment.

The new generation of entrepreneurs, however, especially those from Tuscany, manages to combine the prestigious Carrara marble with sustainable production.

Sustainable marble: the possible paradigm

The production model sees attention to the environment at every stage of the process: the aim is certainly to reduce emissions.

Using renewable energy sources in the quarry, managing electric vehicles for extraction, but also managing it with excavation means that allow for the minimum extraction of material.

These are all concrete measures to promote a new season of sustainable luxury marble.

Even the materials derived from the excavations, the so-called scraps, will be reinvented for the production, in a circular economy, of new materials.

Granules and sands for construction, high quality carbonates for the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries just to name a few.

The environment that houses the precious Carrara marble will then have to be constantly monitored.

Coring to ensure that the mountain is in good health are carried out periodically, also with sustainable resins and with procedures that are not too invasive.

Carrara marble and carbon neutrality

Some Carrara marble companies, such as Franchi Umberto Marmi with about fifty years of history and experience behind them, are aiming for the prestigious title of carbon neutrality company.

Optimizing and equalizing greenhouse gas emissions generated and reabsorbed emissions is one of the new objectives of the marble sector.

Having the product recognized and certifying, even to the final customer, the quality and sustainability of marble, is undoubtedly a new step towards a renewed awareness.

The new sustainable Carrara marble is distributed with the Environmental Product Declaration.

It is a label that immediately recognizes its respect for sustainability ratings recognized worldwide.

A journalist ever since, I love turning the world's events into sentences and lines that can take readers "inside the news", leading them to explore the current happenings with me through my articles. My professional background has allowed me to gain insights into the encounter of two apparently incompatible worlds: luxury and sustainability. Guiding businesses in this direction as a communication manager and event organizer has made me aware that, now more than ever, it is by respecting ourselves and our planet's resources that we should start to create real value.
