CERAMICS – AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SOLUTION

CERAMICS – AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SOLUTION

SUSTAINABILITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Ceramic is a durable material and takes a long time to denature, resulting in the reduction of its overall carbon footprint, compared to other materials which have a short durable lifespan.

At VICAR, we are passionate about the planet and are committed to increasing the sustainability of our practices and lowering our impact on the environment. These are core values of the company, which we apply to all departments and stages of our production process, including: the warehouses, laboratories, offices and production plant. Through our commitment to this, we have increased our energy efficiency and reduced our environmental impact.
