Sustainability

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.

Dynamic balance

Its concrete commitment to Sustainability allows the Group to manage its business activities in such a way that social, environmental and economic values are dependent on each other.

In fact we firmly believe that, in order to grow, not only do we need to achieve economic success, we also need to be socially responsible to all the communities we are part of. This is why we are committed to conserving environmental resources for the future of the next generations.

The structure of our programme is based on three main principles of Sustainability: Social, Environmental and Economic, the aim being that these three dimensions reach a state of dynamic balance.
Each company within the Group is committed to operating in line with this strategy, adopting the most appropriate solutions for the local territory and for the environment and community in which it operates.

Code of Ethics: our calling card

Our values and our commitment to transform them into reality on a daily basis are enshrined in our Code of Ethics, as if it were the calling card of the Group to which we always refer for inspiration and reference.

Sustainable Products

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.

Environmental programmes

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.

Mapei technology

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.
