Fair Stone is the international Social Standard for natural stone imports from developing and emerging markets. Natural stone importers - the Fair Stone Partners - implement certain criteria within their supply chain and therefore actively improve the working conditions in stone processing factories and quarries.
Customers - municipalities and private consumers - are able to contribute to the improvements in working conditions in China, Vietnam and India by buying Fair Stone natural stone products such as cobblestones, kerbs or slabs. With growing demand supply chains from other countries will be added to the Fair Stone standard.
The Fair Stone logo proves that the products are produced
- in compliance with ILO-Core Labor Conventions (e.g. without child or bonded labour, etc.)
- under observation of safety and health of the workers;
- are traceable with the software Tracing Fair Stone
- under consideration of environmental issues.
