Setting International Standards for the Natural Stones Sector

Natural stones products require much physical and low-cost work in the production process in developing countries. Reports of child labour and adverse working conditions on the ground have spun a myriad of initiatives and labels in Germany, Europe and internationally, aiming to create an ethically acceptable and sustainable production. Prospex has worked with GIZ (Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit) in bringing the many different initiatives together. Overcoming the disputes about who provides the best label or guarantee for fair production, the initiative created a platform to develop a shared approach among the initiatives, ranging from work with producers, importers, retailers and consumer organisations.
