Mile Stone introduces carbon neutral tile

Home News Mile Stone introduces carbon neutral tile

MilestoneClarksville, Tenn.—Mile Stone, the distributed brand of Florim USA, CEO, Rodolfo Panisi, announced two sustainability milestones for the brand. The first is the invested pledge for Mile Stone, to become completely carbon neutral by 2030. To validate that commitment, the company has introduced its first entirely carbon neutral tile with its collection Plaster 2.0.

“Our responsibility to design innovative quality products means a duty to not only our customers but also our environment and community,” Panisi said. “In other words, as we focus on designing beautiful, cutting edge commercial and residential spaces, we must remain mindful as we contribute to our communities and natural ecosystems.”

These conscious steps are not new efforts for the manufacturer. The company holds several certifications for its ongoing efforts in sustainability, including Green Squared, a multi-attributed ANSI standard. It is also the recipient of numerous regional and national awards including TN recycler of the Year for 2020. Recently, Florim USA also took part in the first published Material Transparency Study conducted by the TCNA. The study provides a transparent view of materials used in the manufacturing process and the health assessments tied with those materials. Because of these efforts, Mile Stone contributes to LEED and WELL certification credits.

According to the company, Plaster 2.0 brings these efforts to a global environmental level. “Climate change is demanding we take conscious steps that contribute to this generation and generations to come,” Panisi said. “Sustainability is not just a buzz word, but an action, and we hope our actions inspire others to join us in this impactive move. It’s time now to take responsibility.”
