GREENTHINKING is the Keope project designed to meet the objectives of sustainable development.
Keope is actually one of the companies with the higher attention level to the ecological characteristics in the tile industry.
In line with the most advanced technological evolution, Keope has committed itself to a strict programme of eco-sustainability, which began years ago supporting the Kyoto Protocol, to reduce Co2 emissions, and has continued with the attainment of the HPD certification, which attests the health of the products.
Winner of awards in the past for the “Green Management”, Keope became a member of the US Green Building Council for ecofriendly buildings.
The “Greenthinking” mark is the symbol of Keope commitment to protection of nature.
Ceramiche Keope has obtained another very important environmental sustainability certification. This is ISO 17889 Sustainability for ceramic tiles, the first ISO standard that certifies the sustainability of a specific product.
Ceramiche Keope, together with the other brands of the Concorde Group, is the first company IN THE WORLD to have obtained this certification.
Going into more detail, ISO 17889 certifies the environmental sustainability of products, production processes and supplies, in addition to the corporate social responsibility, safety in the workplace and energy efficiency in all stages of production.
The ISO 17889 standard provides for the overcoming of 38 requirements, which concern the following aspects:
[✅] Environmental sustainability of the product
[✅] Environmental sustainability of the process
[✅] Corporate social responsibility
[✅] Safety of the production process
[✅] Environmental sustainability of the supply chain
[✅] Energy efficiency of the production process
The virtuous path of Ceramiche Keope towards a way of doing business that respects the environment and people is marked by certifications that demonstrate the company's concrete commitment. This last stage joins the certification of WELL Building Standard V2 credits obtained last year, which certifies the healthiness of a building with Keope porcelain stoneware coverings, and the DECLARE certification, which determines that our products are free of chemicals. harmful to the environment.
Furthermore, Keope boasts the Uni EN ISO 45001 certification, concerning the management of the health and safety of workers, and the certification of credits relating to the LEED environmental rating, which rewards the design and construction of buildings with low environmental impact.
For Keope, environmental sustainability is not an ideal, but a way of acting. Each certification obtained increases the value of our products, which contribute to building greener buildings in line with the standards required by the ecological transition.
