SUSTAINABILITY FOR COEM

OUR COMMITMENT
FOR A BETTER FUTURE

For Coem, sustainability is a value aimed at creating beauty, a promise of happiness and a powerful form of energy to reach even further. Sharing and storytelling are the basis of our commitment to give meaning to the present and build a better future by inspiring positive ideas and actions.

For years we have been trying to combine sustainability with the technical performance and visual appeal of our ceramic surfaces, through an ongoing process of technological innovation and dedicated management procedures, by acting responsibly towards society and the environment, protecting the health and safety of our staff, customers and co-workers, and through responsible and transparent practices.

Over time, we have developed a wider-ranging plan of action to include challenges focused on people and the planet, and increasingly stringent social and environmental goals.

ENVIRONMENT

RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
IS BOTH A DUTY
AND A PRIORITY

Protecting people and the natural heritage that surrounds us is a commitment that Coem has been pursuing for some time and on which it intends to direct more and more resources.

Investing in innovation means promoting environmental protection through continuous research aimed at improving the entire ceramic production system and avoiding unnecessary wastage, waste and time, optimising materials and resources to ensure beautiful and sustainable surfaces. Requirements of eco-sustainability help to improve the quality and safety of environments within buildings and do not interfere with the visual appeal of the porcelain stoneware, which is always at the forefront of design and technological innovation.
