SAFEGUARDING MAN AND THE ENVIRONMENT

ECO-FRIENDLY MATERIALS FOR THE USER AND THE ENVIRONMENT

KOURASANIT creates resilient, great looking materials with impressive natural properties. Since 1978 we have been building the company firm in the belief that the quality of our environment affects our quality of life.

Modern architecture and interior design seeks to minimise the negative environmental impacts of buildings by making them more efficient and being more sparing when it comes to the use of materials, energy and surface areas.

KOURASANIT has dynamically responded to this trend. Our commitment to the environment lies at the very core of our business. Our production line’s environmental focus clearly reflects our concern with reducing our environmental footprint. This symbol indicates  KOURASANIT’s commitment to the following:
