General Shale’s mission has always rested on manufacturing sustainable building materials. Our commitment is to lead our industry and model sustainability and environmental stewardship. We are doubling our efforts to design and discover pragmatic measures with high sustainability impacts.
A Commitment to Biodiversity
Without fertile lands to draw natural clay deposits, we wouldn’t have sustainable materials such as brick. Our commitment back to these lands includes efforts to restore what existed and promote the restoration of ecological systems that foster a variety of fauna populations.
Connected to the Community
We are proud to partner with organizations in the communities in which we live. With direct impacts across the lower 48 of the U.S. and Canada, we have had the opportunity to partner with more than 45 organizations and build more than 14 homes in the past two years.
Promoting Sustainable Solutions
Our efforts include research through projects to provide solutions for a more sustainable future in the building industry. Whether in the following new build or renovating an existing structure, we strive to pioneer solutions for all consumers.
