Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
Respect for the environment and working in utmost harmony with the world around us in an effort to make a serious contribution to maintaining environmental equilibrium has always been in Ariostea’s DNA.
Our daily commitment, determination to innovate products and operations, to accurately interpret new trends in construction, to take on and confront the great challenges in creating Ethical and Sustainable designs are all reasons why the prestigious certifications of the UNI EN ISO 14001 System, enrolment in the European registry of Environmental Management Emas and the certification of eco-friendly products LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) & BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) are an integral part of Ariostea’s policy.
Currently widespread and used in over 40 countries, the certification system LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) evaluates and certifies social and economic environmental sustainability of buildings considered as a whole.
According to the classification criteria of LEED, building materials having a high environmental sustainability contribute to obtaining credits thus increasing the building’s rating. We certify that the Ariostea tiles in question contain more than 40% (preconsumer) recycled material: therefore they guarantee the highest LEED ratings.
BRE Environmental Assessment Method
It is the most widespread standard in the world and it is designed to measure the environmental impact of buildings by applying specific criteria for assessing the sustainability of the construction. The rating system requires types of certification determined by strict technical parameters and quality control which in turn are based on the most recent technology and knowledge available.
