A company has a very precise role in society; net profit is not its only target. It must also encompass the ethical, scientific, human and cultural values that form the real personality and reputation of the company.
Mapei products certified as having low emission level of volatile organic compounds marked with voluntary and mandatory labels guarantee the quality of indoor air, thereby safeguarding the health of those who apply the products and the users of areas where they are applied.
Mapei also studies the entire life cycle of its products by applying the LCA method to verify their impact on the environment from the raw materials stage to the disposal stage. The results are then communicated through EPD’s (Environmental Product Declarations) in order to guarantee transparency and prevent greenwashing.
Protocols developed by Green Building, aimed at promoting sustainable building, are becoming increasingly important to the market.
Mapei products are an important contribution to protocols such as LEED and BREEAM thanks to the use of recycled raw materials, certified low emissions and environmental declarations known as EPD's (type III Environmental Product Declarations).
Italy recently introduced CAM’s (Minimum Environmental Criteria), which are now mandatory for projects in the public sector: Mapei products also meet the requirements described in this protocol.
We have developed the concept of “Green Innovation” and we have applied it to all those products which, apart from meeting the requirements of LEED Regulations and the most important certification institutes, also have other characteristics to improve environmental comfort in the areas where they are applied and safeguard the health of users. Real technological objectives you will only find in Mapei products.
