The use of natural stone has sky rocketed in the last decade, particularly for interiors. Stone is being used in ways it never has before, largely due to advancements in technology that allow for variations in fabrication. Additionally, the cost of Genuine Stone such as marble and granite has come down as a percentage of building costs. To specify stone for a project means to choose a naturally beautiful, unique and durable material. According to recent data, buildings -- and not cars like many might think -- are the largest source of both energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in America as well as around the planet.

The Natural Stone Council - NSC believes that the use of Genuine Stone may have a positive effect on the overall health of our communities and the world by reducing the current environmental impacts of construction and building. The design of more energy-efficient buildings is a crucial step in addressing the dangers to our environment, and we firmly believe that eco-friendly design and construction will become the norm in the next decade.

To that end, the stone industry wants to be on the front end of the green movement. We feel it is one of the most important things we can do for the betterment of our industry. Our goal is to position stone as the preferred sustainable material within the design/build community.

We hope to do this by helping designers evaluate materials for building projects with hard data. Some of the data will be used to populate the tools that are currently being used and some will be used to directly compare Genuine Stone to other building materials, allowing the most informed, data-driven decisions to be made. Genuine Stone offers many attractive, environmentally friendly benefits, such as durability, ease of care and maintenance, recyclability and an enduring life cycle.

Because stone is such an important material in a number of key building product classes, it is crucial for the natural stone industry to be able to characterize the life-cycle impacts of its products in order to meet the evolving demands of the green building marketplace. Our hope is that once the facts about Genuine Stone are documented and presented, designers, architects, homeowners and retailers will increasingly specify natural stone for their projects in support of green building. The concept of "green building" may be relatively new, but Genuine Stone and its long history as a durable and environmentally responsible building material is not.

Genuine Stone is formed naturally -- an integral part of the planet with no additives required. It is used in many forms, and it is the basis for innumerable products and projects. Some of the great "Wonders of the World" -- Stonehenge, the [Roman] Coliseum, the Great Wall, etc. -- are made of stone and stand as a testament to its beauty, durability and character. Stone has been an integral element of building design and construction for as long as we have documented history. In fact, for more than 2,000 years, stone born from Mother Earth has enabled us to erect our temples, cathedrals, monuments, museums and homes. And now, in important ways, Mother Earth is reminding us that our choices have environmental consequences.

It is our commitment to customers, partners, communities and employees to produce more and more sustainable products, pursue environmentally friendly manufacturing processes and to be ecologically minded and responsible.Three R's Most often referred to as the “three R’s”, the phrase “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” is a simple formula that encourages people, businesses, and municipalities to utilize goods that are already manufactured rather than continue to use only limited raw materials to produce replacement goods.

Green BC

Atlantis Projects is committed to implemented this simple formula to achieve the following goals:

  • Prevent pollution and promote reuse and recycling;
  • Reduce priority and toxic chemicals in products and waste;
  • Conserve energy and materials; and
  • Pioneering the education of the construction industry, in regards to stone and the environment.

Atlantis Projects is committed to being a pro-environment company using and creating eco-friendly products for the marketplace.

From recycling 100% of the water used in the production process, installing an air purification system to remove pollutants from the air to a system that collects all dust within the plant, we strive to ensure a healthy workplace along with an eco-conscious approach in product development, waste management and conservation efforts.


We understand the importance of water conservation and installed a water recycling system as an integral part of the building design and manufacturing process. Our future plant will recycles and reuses 100% of waste water generated during manufacturing.


Our goal is to reuse, renew or recycle as much of our own manufacturing waste as possible. We would like to be able to work with local companies to utilize our by products and have challenged our team to reuse our waste and recycle material that cannot be reused.


One of the most effective ways to contribute to the environment is through the [url=]conservation of energy[/url]. We plan to design our building with a very sophisticated HVAC system with minimum air exchange required. As a best practice, we will continually re-evaluate our operating procedures, to reduce our energy consumption.

• Atlantis Projects will use recycled water in the production plant, making our fabrication process environmentally friendly.
• We will recycle our scrap stone materials, crushing them and making them into pre-consumer recycled materials or to recycle with a local landscape firm.
• Our business cards, letterheads, envelopes, note-cards, and postcards are printed on recycled paper.
• Pioneering the education of the construction industry, in regards to stone and the environment.
