Sustainable Ceramics

Our Commitment to the Environment

At Teamwork Global, we believe in creating ceramic tiles that are not only beautiful and functional but also sustainable and environmentally friendly. Our commitment to sustainability is at the core of everything we do, from the selection of raw materials to our manufacturing processes and beyond.

Sustainable Ceramics

Ethical Sourcing of Raw Materials

Our ceramics derive from natural, abundant, and renewable resources like clay and sand, positioning them as a superior, green alternative in the architectural material spectrum. The conscientious extraction of these materials underscores our resolve to safeguard the environment, ensuring our products are as benign as they are beautiful. The inherent properties of ceramic tiles mean they emit no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), even under direct sunlight. This absence of toxic substances such as phthalates, formaldehyde, solvents, and softeners makes them a safer option for interior settings. Furthermore, their 100% recyclability aligns with our vision for a sustainable lifecycle, allowing their repurposing or safe disposal without environmental detriment.

Zero-Waste Production and Recycled Content

Pride is taken in our bespoke, on-demand production model, which eradicates the necessity for excess stock and significantly curtails waste. This strategy ensures each tile produced has a designated purpose, echoing the principles of sustainability. Incorporating up to 40% recycled material into our products, we're not only minimizing waste but also championing a circular economy in the ceramics sector. This initiative spans our indoor white body tiles and outdoor porcelain stoneware, enhancing their thermal conductivity and energy-saving potential in heating systems.

Research, Development, and Innovation

Acknowledging the CO2 emissions associated with traditional ceramic firing processes, Teamwork Global leads in the exploration and development of innovative ceramic solutions. Our research focuses on materials that require no firing, significantly reducing our carbon footprint and pioneering sustainable manufacturing techniques.

Closing the Loop with Recycling

Our commitment extends to our glazes, with significant advancements made in utilizing recycled materials. A prototype tile, glazed with smelts from the glazing process waste sludge, epitomizes our achievements in this area, boasting a finish of 100% recycled glaze.

Ceramic products are renowned for their longevity, greatly reducing the frequency of replacements. This durability, coupled with the potential for recycling, embodies our dedication to a sustainable lifecycle.

Innovating with Cocciopesto

Pioneering Low Embodied Carbon Materials

In line with our mission, we've embraced Cocciopesto, an ancient material celebrated for its low embodied carbon. Crafted from finely crushed brick fragments and lime-based mortar, Cocciopesto marries artistry with eco-consciousness. Its application in flooring, monolithic pieces, and precast claddings illustrates our commitment to reducing carbon footprints across our product range.

Cocciopesto's versatility enables the creation of distinctive items like tables, washbasins, and kitchen tops, each piece adorned with unique designs and hand-pigmented with natural oxides. Its hand-smoothed surface, showcasing ripples and textures, alongside its resilience and superior physical and thermal properties, underscores its sustainable and durable nature.

At Teamwork Global, sustainability is not just a policy; it's our promise. Through innovative practices, recycled materials, and pioneering products like Cocciopesto, we're dedicated to crafting ceramics that not only enhance spaces but also protect and preserve our planet for future generations.
