Artedomus sustainability statement

The construction of our built environment consumes energy and resources, so it stands to reason that environmental sustainability has become a pressing issue in architecture and design. Artedomus, like many Australian architecture, design and building practices, is working to minimise the impact of buildings on the environment by partnering with suppliers with produce sustainable materials, and by reducing the impact of our day-to-day business operations.
How Artedomus has improved its business operations

All Artedomus offices, warehouses and showrooms operate on green energy and have a comprehensive program for waste management that greatly reduces our contribution to landfill. We are constantly developing new ways to recycle, reduce, and reuse in our day-to-day operations. We have implemented extensive recycling practices, including recycling off-cuts, timber pallets, carboard packaging, masonry, stone, samples and tiles. We also recycle paper and have reduced our printing. We use more environmentally friendly and compostable packaging, such as corrugated cardboard, and have reduced and eliminated the use of bubble wrap and Styrofoam.

Partnering with carbon offset companies, such as Ecosphere in London, we also offset the carbon footprint of our flights.

How Artedomus hold its suppliers accountable

Artedomus has requested that suppliers package their products using less Styrofoam and plastic, and to pack more product into each box or container, thereby reducing the packaging and transportation required.

Artedomus’ stand-out suppliers

INAX shares Artedomus’ concern for the environment. It complies with the strict guidelines of the Japanese Industry Standards (JIS) in regard to the production, composition and waste in the manufacture of its product. INAX recycles tiles during production, reusing any extra pieces or cutoffs in the next batch.

Graniti Fiandre supplies our porcelain panels and tiles and is a zero-emissions company. It has also introduced the revolutionary Active 2.0 treatment that removes pollutants from the air and protects against viruses and bacteria. It is incredibly durable and doesn’t require chemicals to clean it.

Why durability is important to Artedomus

Durability is part of Artedomus’ criteria when selecting suppliers’ products. We stand by the durability and longevity of the products we sell. Like you, we want them to stand the test of time.

Why Artedomus is a trusted name in sustainability

Artedomus has a large range of environmentally friendly products that we are proud to bring to the Australian market. Our suppliers in Europe and Japan comply with very strict guidelines to manufacture products that minimise impact on the environment.

Cotto Manetti Terracotta

Terracotta has proven to be a timeless and versatile surface that is equally at home in the Uffizi Museum and Duomo in Florence, as in an old Tuscan villa or a modern Australian house. While terracotta’s burnt-orange hue has long been a classic, the broader and contemporary range of colours produced by Cotto Manetti is seeing terracotta transcend the traditional to offer a new palette of timeless surfaces.
