MILEstone wins at Planet Positive Awards

Planet Positive AwardsClarksville, Tenn.-MILEstone, the distributed brand of Florim USA, introduced “Plaster 2.0,” a carbon neutral collection of porcelain tiles in North America late last year. The innovative product was chosen as the winner for Metropolis‘s 2022 Planet Positive Awards for the Surfaces, Tiles, Materials category.

“We are delighted to earn such an award in recognition of our contributions to climate action,” said Rodolfo Panisi, CEO, Florim USA. “We hope to be an inspiration to the tile and other industries, for a conscious and positive impact on our planet and the environment.”

The Planet Positive Awards recognize global projects and products that benefit both people and planet. Judged by a panel of industry experts, the winners represent today’s highest achievements in design addressing climate change, ecosystem health, human health and equity, the company said.

MILEstone said it is actively cementing its standard as the “Sustainable Tile, Made in the USA.” Late last year, Panisi announced two sustainability milestones for the brand. The first is the invested promise for MILEstone to be fully carbon neutral by 2030. To validate that commitment, the company introduced Plaster 2.0.

“Our responsibility to design innovative quality products is a duty not only to our customers, but also to our environment and community,” Panisi said at the time. “In other words, if we’re focused on designing beautiful, cutting-edge commercial and residential spaces, we need to stay conscious as we contribute to our communities and natural ecosystems.”
