This ensures a durable performance and an easy maintenance, which makes it perfect for the public sector.

Company: Rosal Stones was founded in 1980 by Manuel Sánchez Marín and his wife, María Robles Jiménez, in the Spanish province of Murcia. As early as 2005, the family-owned firm, now employing 27 people, underwent ISO 9001 and 14001 standards for further development and quality improvement. Since then the company has a clear committment to climate and ressources concerns. Ten years later, the 2nd generation, with the three children of the founders, drew up a plan for 2016 to 2019, during which CO2 emissions have been reduced by 40%. CEO Catalina Sánchez gives a glimpse into the future: “If more suppliers of sustainable construction materials explored these paths, together we could reduce the weight of harmful and highly polluting materials in the construction industry.“
