Brick manufacturing has made great strides toward environmental stewardship by substantially decreasing the amount of embodied energy required to produce a standard brick, and through programs to minimize waste, emissions, and impact on the environment. Brick is a durable cladding material that can be used to meet multiple sustainable design objectives in a project, whether complying with a specific environmental building rating system or not.

This applies to all aspects of the business, from manufacturing a high quality product to maintaining a strong commitment toward environmental stewardship.

Each facility is encouraged to develop and promote manufacturing processes which reduce waste and increase recycling wherever possible. The Belden Brick Company is also aware of the sensitive nature of its greatest assets, clay and shale. The extraction of minerals from the earth is conducted with great care to ensure there are no adverse effects on the surrounding environment.
