Hutton Stone becomes the first Company to achieve Tier 2 verification of The Ethical Stone Register.

Ethical Stone Register Launch Event

We are very proud to announce our fantastic achievement, becoming the first business to achieve tier 2 verification of the Ethical Stone Register.

Earlier this year Marcus visited London’s Bloomsbury House which played host to the launch of The Ethical Stone Register. The event saw major contractors, architects, designers, industry bodies and stone industry firms gather from across the UK to engage with this exciting new resource.

The evening started with a drinks reception which led onto the evening’s presentations. Stone Federation’s Chief Executive, Jane Buxey began by welcoming delegates to the event and explaining the reasons why the Federation had commissioned the creation of the Register and insight into how we see the resource progressing.

Jane was followed by David Richardson of Diagenesis Consulting, one of the scheme development team, who provided an insight into the scheme itself and the industry trends that makes this resource so vital.

The presentations finished with Katie Livesey of Anthesis Consulting, who provided the auditor’s perspective on the Register and explained its value for the contractors, architects and designers that will be using it. A lively question and answer time followed that demonstrated the keen interest that the contractors and architects present had in the scheme.

Tim Yates, Stone Federation President then presented three of the Pilot Scheme member companies, Amarestone, Burlington Stone and Hutton Stone, with a certificate in recognition of achieving Tier Two Verification Level within the scheme.

The evening finished with further networking over canapés and drinks which proved to be a great opportunity for further discussion about the scheme and connections to be made between members and contractors.
