Now more than ever we have to protect, conserve and care for the environment from the equitable distribution of energy resources, collective solidarity and corporate responsibility. Climate change requires us to become aware of and think about effective solutions to ensure the survival of the planet and ours as well, say sources from the corporation.
This action strengthens the program ‘Eco Conscious’ by Porcelanosa, a set of sustainable measures with which the company has reduced its carbon footprint (certified by the Ministry for Ecological Transition) and environmental contamination with the implementation of renewable energy (30% of the energy used in its central Porcelanosa facilities is generated within them), the reuse of 99% of its waste (certificate of ‘Zero Waste’ awarded by SGS), the recycling of raw materials or the purification and reuse of its industrial waters.
We have been looking for new production formulas for several years to design and distribute more efficient, durable and healthy collections. We must redirect the way we use consumer goods by putting an end to programmed obsolescence and prolonging the useful life of each product. A value that is intrinsic to ceramics and that will be fundamental to address the ecological transition in the architectural and social sphere, stand out from the firm.
