Eco Philosophy

A habitat to preserve

As well as constantly improving the quality of our products, we have always actively involved in reducing the environmental impact of our products and factories to the absolute minimum.

From the control of toxic emissions and energy consumption to the recycling of industrial waste, our work has always been based on concrete ethical principles in order to protect the world in which we live, to improve the quality of our lives and those of future generations.

Our efforts are focussed on the reduction of emissions and energy consumption and, with the same effort, we are committed to increasing the awareness of what we consider to be the most plausible ecosustainable choice: the use of porcelain stoneware tiles. The main characteristic of eco-friendly materials is the durability of a product in order to reduce the energy cost necessary to manufacture the product itself.

The durability of porcelain stoneware stretches over an expected life span of at least 50 years (TCNA Study of Floor Covering Costs, 2006) with maintenance costs reduced to a minimum. Its physical properties makes it completely inabsorbent and inert (it does not release toxic agents) thus contributing to the creation of a healthy habitat.

(Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control)

Cutting polluting emissions, energy consumption and improving productivity and quality. Mirage® conforms to the IPPC directive (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control), which attests to compliance with a series of rigorous requisites and the use of the most effective technologies for industrial processes.


Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design: an integrated, sustainable design project covering the whole building, guaranteeing low impact throughout the planning, construction and maintenance stages.
