The most durable cladding material in the world
Cotto d’Este’s 14 mm porcelain stoneware is guaranteed for up to 20 years but lasts much longer: as long as the building in which it is installed, longer than any other cladding material. Furthermore, at the end of its life cycle it can be entirely recycled as a substrate for buildings and roads or be easily disposed of like any other inert material.
Renewable energy sources
Solar panels installed on our roofs reduce the energy consumption of our manufacturing facilities.
Recycled material content
Always adhering to Cotto d’Este’s extremely high aesthetic and qualitative standards, we safeguard natural resources with environmentally friendly products that contain at least 40% recycled raw materials.
Reduced energy consumption and reduced CO2 emissions
When compared to most other cladding materials (wood, natural stone, cork), the manufacture of porcelain stoneware consumes less energy. For this reason, thanks also to modern systems and to its extreme durability, our porcelain stoneware emits less CO2 per square meter of product.
Protecting water resources
Our systems recycle 100% of the water used in the manufacturing process. This reduces our consumption of natural water resources by up to 80%.
