Florim USA, the manufacturer of the MILE®stone brand, is committed to green and social initiatives, placing attention on an environmentally-friendly production process. Concern for, and preservation of, the environment is at the foundation of our industrial operations. We are committed to:
Embodied carbon is the sum of all greenhouse gas emissions (mostly carbon dioxide) resulting from the mining, harvesting, processing, manufacturing, transportation, and installation of building materials. We have low embodied carbon product solutions.
When looking at total greenhouse gas emissions for new buildings built over the next ten years — the critical period for action to address the global climate emergency — it is estimated that 80% will come from embodied emissions.
Lowering embodied carbon emissions is now even more urgent than lowering operating emissions, which comprise the remaining 20%.
Smart choices during design can greatly reduce this footprint. MILE®stone porcelain tile contains the least embodied carbon of any competitive floor covering, partly due to its long useful life, which can easily last the life of the building.
A Benefit Corporation is a for-profit corporation that commits to creating a positive impact on society, its employees, the community, and the environment. Like a traditional corporation, a Benefit corporation pursues profit, but also publicly pledges to be transparent in its business practices and operations and report on its beneficial efforts.
Following in the footsteps of Italian parent company, Florim S.p.A SB, in December 2022 Florim USA formally declared its commitment to making a positive impact, by amending its company charter to become a Benefit Corporation. FUSA is committed to beneficial efforts and walking the path to sustainability, recognizing it's time to take responsibility.
Florim USA, the manufacturer of the MILE®stone brand, is located in Clarksville, TN. Established in 2000, the plant spans over 1 million square feet of covered space and produces over 100 million square feet of tile annually.
