• Our Group is proud to be recognized world-wide for the design and manufacture of exclusive architectural surfacing solutions, and is equally proud to be recognized worldwide for our environmental effort.

    Our products are made with 100% all natural minerals, including: quartz, kaolin, clay, feldspar, silica, and natural coloring agents.
    They are also sustainable because of what isn't there: no sealants, waxes, epoxies, man-made binders, or artificial coloring agents that could add to harmful VOC off-gassing after installation.

    That is why many of our products have achieved GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality and GREENGUARD Children and Schools Certifications which verify that our products meet some of the most stringent indoor air emission standards.
    Moreoveer GREENGUARD Certified products are recognized as creteria for several different points in the USGBC's LEED Green Building rating system (Indoor Environmental Quality Credit 4.3 - Low emitting matererials - Flooring).

    We have a collection made with 100% recycled content: SERIE 100 is both beautiful to look at and kind to the environment.

    Moreover, a third party organization has officially certified many of our products as containing pre-consumer recycled content. A thorough analysis, including on site audits testing and inspections, was conducted to verify the products met specific environmental requirements. This certification enables these products to assist with LEED project certification (Materials & Resources Credit 4 Recycled Content 10% and 20%).

    Our light colored products may have a beneficial SRI (Solar Reflective Index) that can contribute to reducing heat island effects ( LEED's Sustainable Sites Credits 7.1 & 7.2 - Heat Island Effect, Roof & Non-Roof ).
    Our range of 4mm thick tiles can be set on »
  • existing tile floors and walls, which means no disposal needs of existing materials.

    Our tiles can be used to build ventilated fa├žades that insulate and save energy.

    Our products offer so many differentiated solutions (ACTIVE, 4 mm tiles, ventilated facades) that they may contribute to LEED Innovation in Design - Innovation in Design Credit 1. A commitment to green necessitates a thorough understanding of a product's future.

    Savoia's products are designed to last a lifetime. With a hardness rating that is 30% harder than granite and a low porosity rating, our materials are more durable than any other hard surfacing product.

    These characteristics result in a reduction of future materials usage, along with a high stain resistance that reduces maintenance requirements. And, our materials are chemically inert making them stable fill for construction sites and for use as ground material in roadbeds, which reduces the need for quarried gravel.
