Pine Hall Brick Environmental Policy

Pine Hall Brick enjoys a long history of commitment to our employees, the communities where we operate, our customers and the environment. Since 1922, our policies, products and actions have been coordinated to harmonize with our natural surroundings including earth, water, and air.

Brick is mankind’s oldest manufactured building product. It’s made from natural clay shale, water and fire. Its sustainability is unmatched as brick graces some of the world’s oldest standing monuments including the Great Wall of China and the Basilica of Constantine. Virtually all the brick made since our inception is either still in its original use, recycled to other applications or recycled back to the earth which required no special handling. Brick is an inert product with virtually no emissions. The embodied energy used to produce brick (energy used to mine, manufacture and transport) is less than most common building materials including concrete, glass, steel, aluminum, wood, EIFS, and fiber cement according to the American Institute of Architects and the National Brick Research Center.

Most importantly, Pine Hall Brick is proud to meet or exceed all federal and state regulations regarding clean air standards and mining operations. We believe that it is important to treat our environment with care and preserve it for generations to come. We are committed to go beyond what is required and to be a good steward for “doing what is right”. 

In this light, our Environmental Policy is:

  • To meet or exceed all local, state & federal environmental regulations applying to any business segment in which we operate.
  • To continuously monitor and evaluate and improve the environmental impact of all plant & mining facilities.
  • To continuously monitor and invest in resources to lower the energy employed per brick manufactured.
  • To minimize any waste production throughout our business footprints and to develop consistent methods of recycling.
  • To aggressively respond to any environmental distress resulting from an operational malfunction.
  • To educate and empower employees to implement our environmental policies and objectives on a daily basis.
  • To provide customers “no cost” recycling options for jobsite brick waste returned to our facilities.
