“Our Dal-Tile team is keenly-focused on demanding the very best from ourselves as we strive to lead by example with eco-friendly choices and business practices that are grounded in integrity and responsibility,” said Matt Kahny, president of Dal-Tile Corporation. “We are passionate about producing outstanding, innovative products that exceed our customers’ expectations while also ensuring we are good stewards of our communities, people and planet.”
“As we continue to increase the strength of our sustainability platform, responsible manufacturing remains a major focus for Dal-Tile,” said Paij Thorn-Brooks, vice president of marketing at Dal-Tile Corporation. “Currently, we produce 100% natural, environmentally-friendly tile. Our tiles are made from only natural materials: water, clay, sand, feldspar and other minerals. Our tiles contain zero VOCs, zero PVCs, zero allergens and zero formaldehyde.
“With 100% of our manufactured tile products containing recycled or reclaimed material, we help prevent an average of 175 million pounds per year from ending up in our nation’s landfills,” Thorn-Brooks went on to say. “Additionally, 10 of our 12 North American tile manufacturing plants recover and reuse 100% of the generated process wastewater. Each year, we recycle over 125 million gallons of wastewater. We look forward to doing great things as we continue to grow our multi-facetted sustainability program. Our commitment to having a positive impact on the world around us is one of the core pillars of our business.”
