Cosentino Releases New Sustainability Report

Cosentino Sustainability Report 

2021 highlights include a nearly $30M investment in environmental initiatives. Resulting industry-leading advancements include the use of 99% reused water, 100% renewable electric energy and Zero Water Discharge (daily treatment/recirculation of 800,000 m3 of water) through Cosentino’s new HybriQ+® Silestone® products and a continued commitment to minimizing its carbon footprint through its Carbon Neutral Dekton products.

2021 Milestones & Figures:

  • Achieved 100% Silestone production with HybriQ+® technology for Silestone® - a sustainable manufacturing process that uses 99% reused water, 100% renewable electric energy, zero water waste, and a minimum of 20% recycled raw materials within HybriQ+® products’ composition.

  • Produced more than 3M m2 of slabs from recycled or recovered materials (almost one third of the company’s total production). This was made possible thanks to Cosentino’s own Waste Treatment Plant, which enabled the company to manage 400,000 tons of solid waste in 2021, increasing the use of recycled raw materials by 26%.

  • Implemented a new industrial energy model based on renewable energy sources and self-consumption, which also covers the management of water resources. In the coming weeks, Cosentino will set up the largest ground-mounted self-consumption photovoltaic plant in Spain. Looking ahead to 2023, Cosentino ultimately aims to activate and operate its own Wastewater Reclamation Plant, which will put the wastewater discharged by its neighboring communities to a new use.

  • Created nearly 700 new jobs, ending the year with a workforce of 5,425 employees – representing 76 different nationalities, with 91 percent of employees in permanent contracts. Open new Cosentino Citys in cities such as Chicago, Atlanta, Tel Aviv, Palma, Stockholm and Sydney.

  • Increased direct donations by 20% to various local organizations and associations while also expanding support to the fields of architecture, design, sport and gastronomy through a series of partnerships and sponsorships.
