Our Commitment

COSTA NOVA sees its products and operations as part of a long-life cycle and is committed to taking better care of the community and of the world.

The effort to go green and to minimize our impact on the environment is (always) a work in progress.

As producers, we commit ourselves daily to protecting the environment, by improving our infrastructures, but also our manufacturing process, achieving greater efficiency.

Creating a sustainable environment, project-by-project.

Sustainable products

  • Our stoneware products are eco-friendly, reusable and recyclable.
  • The use of local natural resources minimizes our ecological footprint.
  • Single-fired production saves energy and reduces emissions into the atmosphere.
  • This unique single firing process uses less energy than most ceramics, and also uses the excess heat from the kiln to power other factory equipment.
  • Products made with a high % of recycled materials (clays and glazes), decreasing the use of capital, energy, and natural resources.

Sustainable industry

  • Industrial facilities that are environmentally-friendly.
  • Innovative and energy-efficient equipment.
  • Renewable energy (photovoltaic).
  • Waste management policies and recycling procedures.
  • Advanced water treatment and reduction of water consumption practices.
  • 99% Plastic-free packaging.
  • New synergies with other entities – ceramics surplus are now considered by-products, and they are reintroduced into the production process.

Ecogres ® – recycled stoneware

In its commitment to sustainability, Grestel has developed a new raw material, by collecting, recycling, and reusing clays and glazes from its own operations and other materials.

The result is Ecogres®, a reinvented clay, made of 90% recycled materials and completely eco-friendly.

Ecogres® is a registered trademark of Grestel. Products under this label are guaranteed to be made of non-hazardous recycled materials, derived from ceramic surplus and other additives.

All Ecogres® products are guaranteed to be food-safe, complying with the International Standards.

All COSTA NOVA collections are produced with respect for nature - reusable and recyclable.

Âmbar, Lagoa Ecogres and Plano go even further ahead, telling a unique story of how tableware can be made of recycled materials, completely eco-friendly while remaining beautiful and functional at the same time.
