Sustainability
Certified

The topic of sustainable architecture is of crucial importance for companies like Artigo, whose products are placed in large public or private buildings. Hospitals, libraries and schools provide services for the community while also creating environments that are open to all and that must increasingly be oriented towards collective health and well-being.

Artigo’s first commitment is to the people who use our floors: we work for them constantly to ensure that our products are free of PVC, heavy metals, halogens and volatile plasticizers, guaranteeing reduced VOC emissions. But the impact of a work of architecture, with all its constituent elements, must also be evaluated in terms of the broader ecosystem.

We therefore base our sustainability on real and numerically verifiable objectives and have our floors tested by the most prestigious international standards, which has earned us an increasing number of environmental certifications.

The professionals who choose our products can verify our compliance with the most important international standards with complete transparency. These standards are part of an integrated and sustainable process shared by the main construction companies and the most prestigious design firms in the world.
