Sustainable products

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.

Keraflex Maxi S1 Zero and Ultracolor Plus:
the product with zero impact on climate change

Mapei promotes the total offsetting of CO2 emissions during the life cycle of products by purchasing certified environmental credits to promote the implementation of renewable energy projects.

From 2012 Mapei compensates more than 80.000 tons of CO2 associated to the Italian production of Keraflex Maxi S1 Zero through the acquisition of environmental certificated credits: from 2021 also Ultracolor Plus (global production) becomes climate neutral.

Why it is not greenwashing
  • Because we calculate CO2 emissions using LCA methodology with results reported and registered on a verified and certified document (EPD –Environmental Product Declaration)
  • Because credits for offsetting are certified and projects are monitored by international bodies
  • Because our R&D laboratories are constantly developing high quality, durable products but which have less impact on the environment aimed, therefore, at reducing the amount of CO2 associated to the product itself throughout its life-cycle
