SUSTAINABILITY FOR COEM: Our commitment for a better future

For Coem, #sustainability is a value aimed at creating beauty, a promise of happiness and a powerful form of energy to reach even further. Sharing and storytelling are the basis of our commitment to give meaning to the present and build a better future by inspiring positive ideas and actions.

For years we have been trying to combine sustainability with the technical performance and visual appeal of our ceramic surfaces, through an ongoing process of technological innovation and dedicated management procedures, by acting responsibly towards society and the environment, protecting the health and safety of our staff, customers and co-workers, and through responsible and transparent practices.

Over time, we have developed a wider-ranging plan of action to include challenges focused on people and the planet, and increasingly stringent social and environmental goals. We have decided to openly share our first #Sustainability report, produced in accordance with the GRI (#Global Reporting Initiative) Sustainability Reporting Standards. In this report, we express our thoughts on the subject, and our future goals for growing as a company, reducing our impact on the environment and integrating sustainability into our daily decision-making processes.

The Report can be downloaded from our website.

Coem refers to the UN 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a new approach-guide for corporate sustainability. The 17 goals are an international Plan of Action shared by governments and the business world, with 169 specific interconnected targets to save the planet, promote economic prosperity, and empower people and social development.

Coem draws inspiration from this international framework to qualitatively measure how its actions contribute to the achievement of common goals and in a time perspective.

Today, owing to our many years of experience, we are able to produce porcelain stoneware with high environmental performance and excellent technical and aesthetic characteristics, ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Respect for the environment is both a duty and a priority. Protecting people and the natural heritage that surrounds us is a commitment that Coem has been pursuing for some time and on which it intends to direct more and more resources.
