Sustainability

A key value of our business culture

SUSTAINABILITY AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

The Gresmalt Group's sustainability strategy is focused on achieving, and maintaining over time, a balance between the needs and availability of environmental, economic and social resources.

The inclusive growth of the Gresmalt Group and its stakeholders, keeping the equilibrium between environment, economy and society, is within the framework of Sustainable Development.
This concept was proposed in 1987 by the World Commission for Environment and Development of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).

To achieve sustainable development, in 2015 the United Nations approved the 2030 Agenda, a document containing 17 Goals (SDGs) to protect the environment and to ensure the well-being of all people without compromising resources for future generations. ​

It is a comprehensive and multi-sectoral agenda that requires the active involvement of people, businesses, governments and countries around the world.

The Gresmalt Group is committed to implementing the SDGs using tools to monitor the efficiency of production processes and of the supply chain. It also has a sustainable business model that aims at economic growth, social progress and respect for the environment.

THERE IS NO SUSTAINABILITY WITHOUT DATA AND TRANSPARENCY

Creation of value with sustainability​

For the Gresmalt Group, sustainability is an organisational value that translates into the operational commitment to rationalise the use of natural and economic resources and human and social capital, ensuring balanced growth of the company and the satisfaction of stakeholders’ expectations, consistently with the SDGs objectives.

Process monitoring to strengthen sustainability

The Gresmalt Group has placed sustainability at the centre of its corporate culture since 2005 when, pioneering in the ceramic sector, it carried out its first environmental impact assessment through an LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) analysis. From this pilot experience, a process of continuous improvement of the production system started with the aim of minimising environmental impact by reducing the consumption of natural and energy resources.​

DYCTA: digital transformation enables sustainability​

Today the Gresmalt Group, thanks to the digitisation of processes and the technologies of Industry 4.0, boasts an advanced environmental, economic and social sustainability assessment system, called DYCTA (DYnamiC susTainability Assessment). Unlike other sustainability assessment tools, which analyse data from previous years, DYCTA is a dynamic tool that collects both process and organisational data in real time, providing impact values (environmental, social and economic) on a monthly and daily basis.

ECO-DESIGN: SUSTAINABLE DESIGN WITH DYCTA

The Gresmalt Group has adopted eco-design as a new design approach to direct its Research, Development and Innovation capacity towards the principles of sustainability. In fact, it is precisely in the design phase of a new ceramic collection that choices are made that significantly influence the degree of sustainability of the products during their life cycle.

With Eco-design, attention to aesthetics, functionality and value is integrated with the evaluation of the resource flows necessary for the manufacture and use of ceramic products in order to reduce their impact on the environment, also making them sustainable from an economic and social perspective.

The Gresmalt Group has implemented Eco-design and a life cycle perspective by exploiting the potential of DYCTA in association with the Industry 4.0 technologies. This integration has allowed the development of ceramic products capable of including sustainability among the more traditional industrial variables such as functionality, aesthetics, quality and value. ​

This intuition led to the creation of G3NIUS the brand that identifies the commitment of the Gresmalt Group in Research, Development and Innovation for sustainability and which is transformed into new collections of ceramic tiles.
