Carbon footprint calculations for Finnish natural stone
Use of natural materials has been a growing trend in the construction industry for a long time, and now a low carbon footprint provides another good reason to select this material. We commissioned a life cycle assessment from Bionova Ltd. The results were published this spring, and they confirm that products made from Finnish natural stone have a low carbon footprint.
