On the one hand, companies like the Iris Ceramica Group commit to fully supporting environmental protection in all phases of the production cycle and to developing eco-active products for architecture, as well as for interiors. On the other hand, architects must focus on creating high quality spaces for people, while also reducing our environmental footprint.
