CRADLE TO CRADLE® SILVER CERTIFICATION IN THE CERAMIC SURFACES OF IRIS CERAMICA GROUP
The important Cradle to Cradle Certified® Silver certification confirms the innovation and sustainability of made-in-Italy materials. The ceramic surfaces of Iris Ceramica Group, distributed and marketed by Matimex for Spain, Portugal and Mexico, have obtained the Cradle to Cradle® Silver international certification issued by «The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute».
Cradle to Cradle Certified® is one of the most ambitious global standards for the design and manufacture of safe, circular and responsible products. The assessment is based on five categories of sustainability performance:
MATERIALS HEALTH - Ensuring that materials are safe for humans and the environment.
PRODUCT CIRCULARITY - Enabling a circular economy through regenerative products and process design.
CLEAN AIR AND CLIMATE PROTECTION - Promotion of renewable energies and reduction of emissions.
WATER AND SOIL STEWARDSHIP - safeguarding water and soil.
SOCIAL EQUITY - respect human rights and contribute to a just and equitable society.
The certification covers not only aspects related to the product life cycle but also respect for human rights by the company and the supply chain. Also for this reason, it is considered one of the most innovative, detailed and interesting environmental labels.
This prestigious recognition obtained by Iris Ceramica Group, relating to its large Italian-made ceramic formats, is yet another confirmation of the innovation that has always marked the group and another milestone on its continuous path towards an increasingly sustainable future.
