Our Philosophy

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:

Recycled content

We recycle powders, pastes, and residues from our plant. We buy glass from a local landfill and unused tiles are recycled back into manufacturing.


The efficient use of energy in the manufacturing process makes significant reductions in embodied carbon.

Low waste

The wide range of MILE®stone tile sizes helps to reduce material waste during installation.

Locally made

95% of our raw materials are locally sourced within 500 miles of our facilities, saving on transit emissions.


Our tile has a useful life of at least 60 years. It can easily last the lifespan of the building, no replacements or repairs necessary.

MILE®stone Reduces a Building's Embodied Carbon

What is embodied carbon?

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.

Why is it important?

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.

Acting now

Lowering embodied carbon emissions is now even more urgent than lowering operating emissions, which comprise the remaining 20%.

Design choices matter

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.
