VALUE CREATION

WHAT THE INITIATIVE HAS ALREADY DONE:

> Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

> Tabela Ambiental ® (Environmental         

   Table ®)

> Environmental Legislation

> Greenhouse Gas Emissions

> Guia para Sustentabilidade (Guide for

    Sustainability)

WHAT IS COMING:

> Promote the sustainable development

   of the sector

> Promote innovation and sustainability in

    the Brazilian ceramic tile industry

> Generate content and knowledge about

    the subject

> Create solutions for sustainable cities

CERAMIC TILES ARE THE COATING WITH THE LONGEST LIFETIME

The sustainable attributes

of Brazilian ceramic tiles:

> Durability

> Cleaning

> Contribution to energy efficiency

> Efficient water and energy consumption

> Recyclabe

> Zero allergenics, VOCs, PVC

   and formaldehyde

> Fire resistant

> Social Responsibility

​The objective of the Anfacer Initiative + Sustainable is to enable Brazilian companies to add environmental and social value to their businesses, while generating financial results.

THE EMISSIONS

INVENTORY

According to the study:

4,640,619 tCO2e

This was the reduction in emissions the sector achieved between 2006
and 2016, with the adoption of natural
gas as its main energy source.

This is equivalent to:

stopping 1,000 cars from driving

around the planet 836 times

Avoiding felling
a forest area equivalent to

 8,861 football pitches

THE LIFE CYCLE
ASSESSMENT

The sector’s environmental footprint was calculated via the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).The study undertaken by the initiative encompasses the cycle from raw material extraction to the product leaving the factory (from cradle-to-gate).

MORE THAN 70% OF THE TECHNOLOGY USED IN PRODUCTION IS HIGHLY EFFICIENT IN WATER AND ENERGY USE

THE

ENVIRONMENTAL TABLE®

The purpose of the Table is to communicate the product’s technical attributes to the market in a transparent manner, as well as to fulfill certification and sustainable construction requirements, such as LEED® and AQUA-HQE.
