The environment

Building a sustainable future together

The ability to offer the best and most innovative solutions to design and construct according to eco-sustainable principles is a fundamental commitment for Mapei. This requires a sense of responsibility and the ability to make concrete choices in order to supply designers, contractors, workers and clients with products which are safe, reliable and durable over the years and which have the lowest impact possible on the environment. It is a path that puts an emphasis on safeguarding the environment and our health. It unites quality architecture and research and development and hinges around the value of the experience matured by operating on the most important construction sites around the world. In fact, we contribute to a the creation of quality, durable buildings through products formulated with innovative, recycled, ultra-light raw materials developed to reduce energy consumption and to have very low emission of volatile organic compounds.

Another important contribution to eco-sustainability is made through the development of products with improved mechanical performance characteristics and durability which, by enabling structures to be fabricated with an intrinsically longer service life, leads inevitably to a reduction of waste materials and lower consumption of materials and energy for their construction.

Ours is a choice which looks to the future and is the result of our constant commitment to research into innovative, efficient formulas which can be integrated to form complete application systems. Maintaining quality standards of excellence also requires significant, targeted investments. Excellence, however, is not just something you can declare: our wish is that whatever we communicate is also measurable, measured and certified by external bodies who can evaluate our claims objectively.

Since 2012 we have offset more than 80,000 tons of CO2 associated with the production of Keraflex Maxi S1 Zerø in Italy through the acquisition of environmental certified credits: in 2020 have been purchased credits for the project ‘Wind Based Power Generation’ in India.
This project enables electricity production by means of wind energy. Wind it’s a renewable and sustainable source of energy, it is capable to reduce drastically greenhouse gases emissions and it plays a significant role in climate change mitigation. The project actively contributes to improve living standards of local communities by creating employment opportunities. Furthermore, the project will lead to the construction of new infrastructures (i.e. roads) that could be instrumental to the economic growth of the region.

The project adopts the following SDGs:

SDG7: Affordable and Clean Energy: Access to renewable, safe and widely available energy sources for all

SDG8: Decent Work and Economic Growth: Creating jobs for all to improve living standards, providing sustainable economic growth

SDG9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure: Generating employment and income through innovation

SDG13: Climate Action: Regulating and reducing emissions and promoting renewable energy

 

Keraflex Maxi S1 Zero is the first ceramic tile adhesive with climate change effect totally offset.
