Glass is an extremely old material which has been part of our lives for more than 5000 years but it is also a totally modern material.
Glass is a totally natural, non polluting material which can be recycled a potentially infinite number of times. For these reasons it is a highly environmentally compatible material.
Energy saving and environmental respect objectives which Italy too committed itself to pursuing when it signed the Kyoto Protocol in 1997 gave additional impetus to the use of glass in a large range of contexts.
Environmental sustainability could thus not but be one of Veneto Vetro's cardinal principles.
Our company headquarters itself testifies to and symbolises this principle. With its insulation both inside and out, its low emission windows and doors, its screening system aimed at blocking the sun's rays in summer without limiting the sun's heating effect in winter, it is an example of eco-friendly building.
In 2013 Veneto Vetro showed its interest in the issue of environmental sustainability by taking part in the Future Steps event at the XIII Venetian Architecture Biennial with the creation of the Studiomobile Networking Nature project. Networking Nature uses solar water desalination technology to create an innovative urban landscape and reflect on the network as a tool for resource sharing.
