“Behind every problem there is an opportunity.”

~Galileo Galilei

Buildings have extensive direct and indirect impacts on the environment

During their construction, occupancy, renovation, demolition, etc., buildings use energy and raw materials, and generate waste. In fact, in Europe the constructions are responsible for 40% production of CO2 emissions, use 35% of environmental resources, and produce 38% of waste in general.

In our sector, tiles are “green product”, ceramic tiles are the most eco-friendly type of flooring available, made from 100% natural materials like sand, mixtures of clay and other natural substances baked at high temperature.

If you think about it, where ceramic is used or applied is the area which is more in contact with the people and their well-being: where your kids walk and your dog lays down, where food is prepared, baths, etc.

Our ceramic products can be qualified consistent (or coherent) with the main Green Building Standards Ratings at an international level, is therefore the solution with the lowest environmental impact, and health conscious living.

Additionally, ceramic products are also consistent with the theories of positive circular economy: Restorative and regenerative by design.
“The circular economy in fact is an approach that can be applied to any production system with the aim of minimizing the raw material consumption (inputs) and waste generate
(outputs) of production process.”

Our offer, All-Inclusive Green, allows you to obtain various green building certifications. Why choose our All-Inclusive Green? : It’s ethical, long-term economical, and everyone (investors, planners, etc.) involved in the construction process nowadays should give more importance and priority to the principles of Green Building Solutions.

All other products we use in the Green process, like glue, silicon, waterproofing, grout etc., are selected from the leading world manufacturer of Green Building Solutions. For more information contact us.

Green Building Solutions can be used as an incentive for clients, owners, designers and users, to develop and promote highly sustainable construction practices.

There are several benefits and advantages to using sustainable construction practices and materials. For example: saving 30% to over 96% in the reduction of waste (carbon, energy, water and other materials); Prioritizing safer materials and lowering our exposure to toxins; Reducing operating costs by up to 9%.

Many sustainable buildings have also seen up to 6.6% increases on return of investment, and that is no small amount when factored in over many years. Also, the increases of the rent and occupancy in eco-friendly buildings has risen over 3%, as this type of living environment becomes more and more popular.
Other valuable benefits include increased life and health values, and better indoor environmental quality.

A project carried out with environmental sustainability criteria can minimize or completely eliminate impacts of negative environmental issues by a conscious choice that passes through design and construction practices.

The principles of eco-sustainability offer great opportunity to respond to some of the most important challenges of our time: global climate change, dependence on no-sustainable energy sources, both economically and environmentally, and the problems related to public health.

It’s time to rethink the resource and use green and sustainable products, which leave less impact on the environment. Our mission is to go in this direction.
With a right choice today, you can care about environment, and the health of the public, future generations and people you love.
