ECO by Cosentino® brings waste products to life.
ECO by Cosentino® is an original product manufactured from 75% of recycled materials such as mirror, glass, porcelain, earthenware and vitrified ash. It’s a product that embraces sustainability, design, and quality that has produced a new category of recycled surfaces.
All the manufacturing processes comply with high environmental standards; which makes ECO by Cosentino® a highly sustainable and unique product. Even 94% of the water used in its manufacturing process is re-used.
ECO also has an extremely low rate of water absorption and porosity, making it an ideal material for bathrooms and kitchens. It’s a compact and hard surface highly resistant to impact, chemical products and scratches – and it’s easily maintained with simply soap and water.
International certifications for environmental commitment
ECO by Cosentino® has been accredited by the following international certifications, which confirm the competence of Cosentino in designing a high-quality and sustainable, recycled surface.
GREENGUARD Certification ensures that a product has met some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air. The GREENGUARD Gold standard includes health based criteria for additional chemicals and also requires lower total VOC emissions levels to ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
An EPD® (Environmental Product Declaration) is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life-cycle environmental impact of products. Having an EPD® for a product does not imply that the declared product is environmentally superior to alternatives — it is simply a transparent declaration of the life-cycle environmental impact.
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It helps organizations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.
Cradle to Cradle®
The Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard guides designers and manufacturers through a continual improvement process that looks at a product through five quality categories — material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness. A product receives an achievement level in each category — Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum — with the lowest achievement level representing the product’s overall mark.
