BLOOMINGTON -

Bloomington-based Indiana Limestone Co. has received what it says is the first accreditation of its kind in the state. The limestone building products supplier has received the Sustainable Production of Natural Dimension Stone Certification for its three quarries, which it says will help architects and builders ensure the stone they request for their buildings is produced in an economically, environmentally, and socially responsible manner.

The designation was developed by the Natural Stone Council and is accredited by the American National Standards Institute. ILCO says all three of its operating quarries received silver certification. 

The company says the certification helps building designers meet industry standards for green building, such as LEED certifications.

"Indiana Limestone Company has a long-time commitment to producing materials in a manner that is environmentally responsible, and this recognition only reinforces the long-standing position that our operations, partners and products should all be held to a level of good environmental stewardship," Tom Quigley, chief executive officer of ILCO, said in a news release.

The ANSI/NSC 373 standard evaluates nine elements of a quarrier and fabricator's operations, including water usage and recycling, site management, land reclamation and adaptive use, and energy usage and conservation. You can learn more about the certification by clicking here.
