CALSTAR'S MISSION:
BUILDING A BETTER WORLD


At CalStar, we develop innovative technologies that reduce the immense burden building products have on the environment. And at the same time, we use sustainability to help lower our costs -- and those of our customers.

CalStar is the only manufacturer in masonry products with an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD). Following an intensive life cycle assessment by one of the world’s leading architectural firms, Perkins + Will, CalStar was awarded an EPD that verifies our bricks require 81% less energy to manufacture, incorporate 37% recycled content, and emit 84% less CO2 during production (relative to traditional bricks).

What does it all mean? In addition to being affordable, attractive, and meeting or exceeding the performance standards of traditional masonry products, CalStar’s products have dramatically lower embodied energy and carbon footprints.
