Quality at Marazzi means quality of product, environmental sustainability and respect for workers’ safety, priorities that have enabled the firm to certify its systems and products. For Marazzi, loving ceramics has always meant respecting the environment, in the sense of the human and natural landscape.
Marazzi is a standard-bearer for eco-sustainable industry and has helped to make ceramic tile production a closed-cycle process. Throughout the entire process, Marazzi has developed a system for the collection and reuse of reject output, process wastewater and the raw materials it contains, and the heat generated in a number of phases. Environmental quality criteria are applied to the entire manufacturing cycle, limiting consumption of natural resources and environmental impact, through the restoration of quarries’ landscape and vegetation, controlled waste management, the optimisation of energy consumption and the recycling of industrial wastewater.
The safety of the staff who work in the plants is another absolute priority: Marazzi performs constant checks on occupational health and safety levels, making any technical and organisational changes required, including through direct involvement of its employees, to whom the company offers continuous educational and training courses to guarantee compliance with the set safety and environmental standards.
In 1994, Marazzi Group was one of the first companies in the industry to obtain ISO 9001 certification which guarantees the quality of the products and services supplied, while its environmental management system has been ISO 14001 certified since 2003. In 2018, Marazzi Group obtained occupational health and safety management certification according to the OH SAS 18001 standard.
