Earth, Air, Fire, & Water - Sustainability Naturally
As a part of the Marazzi Group, the concept of quality naturally extends to include both social and environmental factors. We believe that these socially significant goals must be pursued in conjunction with objectives related to the quality of our products and services.
On the path to increased sustainability, we look to science, the design community, clients and our local communities for insight. We recognize that other tile manufacturers who may ordinarily be viewed as competitors are valuable and needed partners in the transformation of our industry. Together we can drive innovation and aggregate demand for more regenerative practices and more energy efficient products.
In seeking to understand the world around them, ancient philosophers categorized matter in terms of earth, air, fire and water. These same primary elements are at the core of our mission to respect, restore, and protect.
(Earth) durability | stability | timelessness
Resonating with natural beauty, Marazzi tiles embody the essence of Earth. As a building material, tile has an exceptionally low life cycle cost. The typical lifespan of tile is 50 years, and ceramic tile costs less per year than all other floor finishes over the life of a building.
(Air) crisp | clean | pure
Elegant and natural, tile provides a healthy alternative to other flooring products. Marazzi tiles emit no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and require no harsh chemicals for maintenance, contributing to improved indoor air quality, which positively affects the health and productivity of occupants.
(Fire) innovation | transformation | inspiration
Like fire transforms clay, Marazzi is committed to transforming our company to be more socially and environmentally responsible. Because fire is a core element in the manufacturing of Marazzi products, we understand the critical importance of pursuing energy efficiency measures and researching renewable energy sources and emerging reduced-impact production technologies.
(Water) reliance | luxury | flow
Like water, tile is adaptable to its environment. Marazzi tiles create luxurious, resilient and tranquil environments in areas where other floor coverings can’t be used. Because we recognize that we must all do our part to protect and conserve this vital resource, Marazzi reuses 100% of wastewater generated during the manufacturing process.
