Mosa focuses intensively on sustainability in the sense of Cradle to Cradle (C2C). The company reduces waste, saves energy, and develops its corporate social responsibility according to five main criteria: pure raw materials, a large potential for reuse, low energy consumption, environmentally-friendly water management, and good terms and conditions of employment.
Mosa is the first ceramic-tile manufacturer in the world to have gained C2C Silver certification for the vast majority of its tile collection. Mosa tiles help designers achieve positive scores for Dutch and international building labels such as LEED, BREEAM, DGNB, and HQE. They make sure the data linked to their tiles is accessible in various national and international databases for the award of sustainable building labels.
Mosa’s externally validated life-cycle analysis (LCA) supports the sustainable character of the company’s tiles.
Just as in nature, with Cradle to Cradle there is no waste, no shortages and no limitations. It is a design concept predicated on the unlimited reuse of raw materials, the use of renewable energy and the stimulation of diversity.
The goal is to launch a new industrial revolution which ensures that production and manufacturing have a positive impact on society, the economy and our planet. Cradle to Cradle was developed by Prof. Michael Braungart (EPEA) and architect William McDonough (MBDC) and has since become a well-known sustainability concept.
