Sustainability for Portobello means being aware of our actions and the impact of our choices. It means understanding the responsibility that comes with being an integral part of our society and ecosystem.
Check the 2020 Sustainability Report and get to know all our actions, from production chain to distribution, which help build a better future where we all evolve together.
Looking after our employees, with respect and dignity.
Ensuring that the natural resources required for production are used rationally.
That the production process is not only socially and environmentally responsible, but also regenerative.
That the communities around us are built into the brand ecosystem.
That the waste we produce is repurposed.
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
The raw material used to make ceramics is earth itself, removed from shallow layers and mostly in areas close to our plantsKnow the entire process
Moving water and the mechanical force of waterwheels turn clay into a very fine powderKnow the entire process
The shape of ceramics involves the technology of the presses and the heat energy along the line towards the furnacesKnow the entire process
