Sustainability

"SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IS DEVELOPMENT THAT MEETS THE NEEDS OF THE PRESENT WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE ABILITY OF FUTURE GENERATIONS TO MEET THEIR OWN NEEDS."

Brundtland Commission of the United Nations on 20 March 1987


As a manufacturer, we are keenly aware of our duty to operate in a responsible and ethical manner. We recognize the dual dilemmas of “how” and “what” – how do we responsibly produce a product, and what is that product composed of? We understand and embrace the challenge before us by upholding our commitment to produce superior products, while honoring the responsibility we have to our environment on a local and global basis.

In an effort to reduce our impact on the environment, Superior Block manufactures a line of eco-friendly concrete masonry units that meet or exceed all applicable specifications and requirements. Our GREEN block are available in a wide range of sizes, densities, strengths and colors to meet any design requirement.

We use GREENLITE, a reclaimed expanded shale aggregate, in the manufacture of our GREEN and fire rated units. The production of Greenlite incorporates 20% recycled waste material in its constituent makeup.

In addition, we use a post-industrial Supplementary Cementitious Material (SCM) in the manufacture of our GREEN block. By using an SCM, we are able to reduce our cement content by 30%. Use of our GREEN products directly reduces the environmental impacts of construction by altering the integral components of the built environment, thereby helping to create and preserve sustainable communities.
