Quality, Environment and Safety
Quality at Marazzi means quality of product, environmental sustainability and respect for workers’ safety, priorities that have enabled the firm to certify its systems and products. For Marazzi, loving ceramics has always meant respecting the environment, in the sense of the human and natural landscape.
Marazzi is a standard-bearer for eco-sustainable industry and has helped to make ceramic tile production a closed-cycle process. Throughout the entire process, Marazzi has developed a system for the collection and reuse of reject output, process wastewater and the raw materials it contains, and the heat generated in a number of phases. Environmental quality criteria are applied to the entire manufacturing cycle, limiting consumption of natural resources and environmental impact, through the restoration of quarries’ landscape and vegetation, controlled waste management, the optimisation of energy consumption and the recycling of industrial wastewater.
The safety of the staff who work in the plants is another absolute priority: Marazzi performs constant checks on occupational health and safety levels, making any technical and organisational changes required, including through direct involvement of its employees, to whom the company offers continuous educational and training courses to guarantee compliance with the set safety and environmental standards.
In 1994, Marazzi Group was one of the first companies in the industry to obtain ISO 9001 certification which guarantees the quality of the products and services supplied, while its environmental management system has been ISO 14001 certified since 2003. In 2018, Marazzi Group obtained occupational health and safety management certification according to the OH SAS 18001 standard.
European Union environmental quality mark, obtained by Marazzi Group in 2004, awarded to products which meet and comply with environmental standards, such as the rational use of energy resources and natural resources, low atmospheric and wastewater emissions, use of substances that are not dangerous for humans and the environment, waste management and more effective consumer information. With the EU Ecolabel, Marazzi Group meets the Minimum Environmental Criteria (CAM) required for public procurement.
Marazzi products are manufactured with a recycled material content certified by the Certiquality institute and contribute to the achievement of LEED certification credits.
Marazzi Group has assessed its products' environmental impact throughout their life cycle, from extraction and processing of the raw materials through to the recycling of demolition spoil. The findings of this LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), performed in accordance with the ISO 14040 series international standards, have been published in the Environmental Product Declaration (ISO 14025 and EN 15804), contributing to the attainment of LEED certification credits.
