DeltaGreen - Sustainability
Delta Granite is committed to protecting its people, the natural resources it uses, and its impact on the environment. As an industry leader, Delta Granite has a rich heritage of investing in its resource management.
In a time where many businesses are evaluating every penny as a negotiable expense, Delta Granite continues to invest in optimizing it’s management of water and air for the benefit of it’s employees and our city’s water resources.
Stonecrafting traditionally uses a significant amount of water. Additionally, run-off water is hazardous for our employees and the environment since the run-off water is contaminated and can cause allergic/skin reactions. It can also cause harm to our water system. Effectively managing run-off water in stone fabricating is essential for our employees and our community’s water system.
As San Antonio is facing severe water restrictions, South Texas is scrambling to learn how to use water more wisely. The goal of wise water management is not just to use less water; it is about more effectively managing the water you use. Delta Granite has been doing just that for several years now.
Delta Granite demonstrates our eco-friendly values and commitment in many ways:
- Delta Granite has chosen to invest more than $160,000 over the last 3 years in water and air management systems and processes.
- All water used is filtered, processed, and re-circulated with a state-of-the-art Water Filtration and Management System.
- Air is managed and filtered with one of the most-expansive air filtration systems operating in any stone fabricator in South Texas.
- SafetyFirst practices insure all Stonecrafters follow all Delta Granite SafetyFirst policies and procedures.
Through these and many other people-friendly, eco-friendly practices, Delta Granite has reduced water usage dramatically by activating protective resource management into every step of its stonecrafting process.
In July 2009, Delta Granite SAVED NEARLY 230,000 GALLONS of water compared to July 2008.
We project to reduce our annual water usage by approximately 1.7 MILLION GALLONS over the next 12 months.
We hope to inspire others to invest in saving and protecting our precious resources.
Not only do our Delta Granite customers appreciate our care and concern for every detail of their projects…they appreciate that it is a strength we apply across all facets of our business. And it’s right thing to do for our Delta Granite Team.
Delta Granite. Be Inspired.
