Protecting the

Planet Earth is our home. And, for thousands of years, we have been using its natural resources to build our houses. Now we number over 7 billion. The only future worth imagining is one in which our management of architectural resources is smart, optimized and sustainable.

Ceramic tiles replace non-renewable resources in a manner that is much more logical, technically and environmentallywise. In the case of Portobello, they are exceptionally sustainable.

We worry about the way mineral deposits are explored and restored, about where the water we use comes from, about repurposing waste, about creating a positive impact for our communities. In our design process, architecture knows no bounds. In 2020, we distributed over 36 million square meters of sustainably-sourced tile coverings in Brazil and around the globe. On the following pages, we will show how we are working on creating the future we want.

The evolution of design and technology allows porcelain Slabs to emulate materials such as wood, marble and other natural stones, with technical characteristics more suitable for use as tiles and with less environmental impact
