Home News MILEstone wins at Planet Positive Awards

Planet Positive AwardsClarksville, Tenn.—MILEstone, the distributed brand of Florim USA, introduced “Plaster 2.0,” a carbon-neutral porcelain tile collection, to North America late last year. The innovative product was selected as a winner for Metropolis‘s 2022 Planet Positive Awards for the category of Surfaces, Tiles, Materials.

“We are happy to earn such an award as a recognition of our contributions to climate action,” said Rodolfo Panisi, CEO, Florim USA. “We hope to be an inspiration to the tile and other industries, for conscious and positive impact on our planet and environment.”

The Planet Positive Awards recognizes worldwide projects and products that benefit both people and planet. Judged by a panel consisting of industry experts, the winners represent the highest achievements today in design that addresses climate change, ecosystem health, human health and equity, according to the company.

MILEstone said it is actively solidifying its standard as the ‘Sustainable Tile, Made in the USA.’ Late last year, Panisi announced two sustainability milestones for the brand. The first is the invested pledge for MILEstone to become completely carbon neutral by 2030. To validate that commitment, the company introduced 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 at the time. “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.”
