ECOLABEL

Ecolabel is an environmental certifi cation for a product, established by the European Union (66/2010/CE, 2009/607/CE). It is done so as to allow all consumers to buy “green” products that are eco-compatible, and to contribute concretely to the safeguard the eco-system and improve our standard of living.

All the Ecolabel products are marked with a clearly visible daisy. This label is a proof of excellence, because it is given after a thorough analysis of the product life cycle (LCA). For each product all the environmental aspects are considered in the production phase, from raw material to the destruction of the fl ooring: the quality of the air and water, protection of soils, reduction of waste, energy consumption, management of natural resources, protection of the ozone layer, and impact on biodiversity.

Tiles by Panaria are totally inert materials and, after their regular use, can be recycled as substrates for roads and buildings. Click here to download PDF.
