While GranitiFiandre is proud to be recognized worldwide for the design and manufacture of exclusive architectural surfacing solutions, we are equally proud to be recognized worldwide for our environmental efforts-our Legacy of Green.
Green | Our Legacy of Green
Respecting and protecting nature have been an important part of GranitiFiandre’s corporate philosophy since our initial startup in 1961, in the town of Castellarano, Italy-before environmental responsibility was mandated. Today, we continue our extraordinary environmental commitment and stewardship at our state-of-the-art production facilities located in Italy, Germany, and the U.S. We understand that a company’s environmental legacy begins with corporate values and that corporate values must be supported by people, systems, and actions to bring about positive results.
Green | Sustainability
GranitiFiandre products are “green” because they are made with 100% natural minerals, including quartz, clay, kaolin, feldspar, silica, natural coloring agents.
They are also green because of what is not there: no sealants, no waxes, no epoxies or man-made binders, no artificial coloring agents. Consequently they can be used in green buildings. In fact our materials contribute to a safe, healthy indoor environment. They have no artificial component that would release volatile organic compound (VOCs) into a building environment through off gassing.
Green | LEED
The United States Green Building Council (USGBC), an independent organization generally accepted as the leading source of green building standards, sponsors the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™) program.
LEED™ recommends standard environmental guidelines for sustainable building projects. Our US Division, StonePeak, is a member of the USGBC.
