The new global challenge today is LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design): one of the most widespread building certification systems in the North American market, which is now gaining ground in the rest of the world too. Caesar has been awarded the USGBC mark (U.S. Green Building Council), of which it is a member. The certification method envisages the allocation of a score to the building in question, awarded based on verified compliance with the various pre-requisites and LEED credits (sustainable sites, efficiency in water management, energy consumption and impact on the atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, innovation in design).
All Caesar porcelain stoneware products can contribute towards the allocation of LEED credits for the purpose of certification and many of our products are manufactured using a considerable percentage of recycled pre-consumer raw materials, an important requisite for obtaining additional LEED credits.
