Recently, the world's leading inspection, identification, testing and certification organization SGS-CSTC Standard Technical Service Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as SGS) was invited to participate in the 2011 "11th Xiamen International Stone Fair", and held during the exhibition " Stone carbon footprint and CE certification forum, and the majority of stone industry companies and foreign traders on the stone carbon footprint, stone CE certification, stone testing and inspection and other exchanges. Participants paid great attention to the low carbon regulations and standards abroad, the “carbon footprint” requirements of foreign buyers, and how to label “Chinese carbon” with “carbon mark”. Since the reform and opening up, China's stone has achieved remarkable results, and its reputation has been well-known overseas. According to the National Federation of Industry and Commerce Stone Industry Chamber of Commerce, as of 2010, China's stone raw material output has now reached the world's first, processing capacity in the world, and foreign trade exports to the world's first. China's stone market has become an indispensable force in the international stone market. “As the global environment continues to deteriorate, countries around the world are increasingly demanding environmental protection. The high pollution of the stone industry in the manufacturing process has received attention from all walks of life.” Mr. Guo Yaowen, Director of Industrial Services at SGS, said, “More downstream buyers are based on Social responsibility places demands on the “carbon footprint” of stone products.” Following the end of the Copenhagen conference, the low-carbon economy has swept across the country, and countries have introduced low-carbon regulations or plans. The thousands of greenhouse gas emission sources required by the US EPA's Greenhouse Gas Mandatory Reporting Rules must start from 2010, record data from January 1 of each year, and report annual greenhouse gases by March 31 of the following year. Emissions. The Australian government plans to impose a fixed carbon price of $20 to $30 per ton of carbon emissions from July 1, 2012. From July 1, 2011, France has commissioned a new environmental law that requires disclosure of its carbon footprint, covering all products produced and sold in France, and hopes to incorporate its carbon footprint into the EU's energy labeling program. According to a carbon footprint study based on the life cycle assessment methodology and based on the British PAS 2050 standard, the carbon footprint of sandstone and granite in the UK is lower than that of other building materials (64 and 93 kg CO2e/ton stone), but slate The carbon footprint is significantly higher (232kgCO2e/ton stone). The carbon footprint of stone is mainly affected by the stone manufacturing process, transportation and waste. If Chinese stone enterprises can actively meet the requirements of “carbon footprint” and respond to challenges through technological innovation and supply chain optimization, they will be able to increase the added value of products and promote the high-end development of China's stone industry. So, how do you put a “carbon mark” on a stone product? SGS can guide companies to collect relevant data in the “carbon” project, and conduct carbon footprint calculation based on the collected data, and propose improvements to help companies reduce carbon emissions and achieve cost reduction. Companies can also purchase carbon credits for “carbon offsets”. SGS can issue results reports to companies and guide them to label “carbon footprint”, “carbon reduction” or “carbon neutrality”, ie “carbon identification”. Once China relied on resource advantages and entrepreneurial spirit to write the glory of the stone industry. Nowadays, under the global development trend of “environmental protection and low carbon”, new opportunities for the stone industry are coming, but how can we seize it. In 2011, the stone industry has the courage to innovate and dare to break through to be able to walk out of Kangzhuang Avenue. As a recognized global benchmark for quality and integrity, SGS has helped many stone manufacturers achieve CE certification. With the development of society, low-carbon sustainable development will become the future direction of the stone industry. SGS is committed to helping stone manufacturers to develop low-carbon production models, thereby promoting economic, environmental and social harmony and win-win.
