The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a transparency tool that communicates the environmental performances of Cotto d'Este porcelain tile through a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). Cotto d'Este products have a type III specific EPD. This is certified by an independent third party according to EN 14025 and EN 15804 standards (applicable PCR). EPD certified products are required by the main construction certifying bodies such as LEED (international), BREEAM (England), HQE (France), and DGNB (Germany), as well as the legislative frameworks in Italy (requisites for sustainable public contracts).

GREENGUARD certifies products that guarantee the highest standards of air quality in indoor environments. All porcelain stoneware and Kerlite Cotto d'Este collections have obtained GREENGUARD GOLD certification, i.e. the UL standard with the strictest VOC emission limits, and are therefore able to ensure that they are as healthy as possible for the people who use and inhabit these environments. They can therefore be used in environments such as schools and health facilities, attended by sensitive individuals such as children and the elderly. GREENGUARD GOLD is a widely recognised certification required by sustainable building programmes and design and construction regulations around the world, such as LEED (international) and BREEAM (UK).
