National Sustainable
Architecture Association and
ICEA - Environmental and Ethical

This represents important recognition for our bio-ecological products, certifying maximum care paid to the environment and complete compliance with the strictest bio-architecture criteria. Fassa Bortolo’s Bio-Architecture line was the first in Europe to obtain certification with KB 13, the first plaster certified in 1999, setting the standards in the sustainable architecture sector.


Association for the Control of Emissions
in Products for Floor Installation,
Adhesives and
Building Materials

Voluntary mark certifying the emission of Volatile and Semi-Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC and SVOC) issued by GEV (the Association for the Control of Emissions in Products for Floor Installation, Adhesives and Building Materials). Applied to the System for Laying Floor and Wall Coverings, following strict testing the products were classified Emicode EC1 Plus (i.e. very low emissions).

Indoor air quality

All the products in the Fassa Bortolo Paint System respect the parameters established by European Union regulations and standards aimed at limiting the emission of organic compounds. They therefore comply with the provisions of Italian Legislative Decree no. 161 of 27/03/2006 (implementing Directive 2004/42/EC), identifying the maximum content of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in paints and paste coatings.

EPD Process Certification

Our company has decided to adopt a certified EPD Process System regarding environmental communication. This means that the entire process of collecting data, conducting LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) studies and monitoring environmental impact will be managed using a specific system that is certified in accordance with the most recent and updated international standards. The company will consequently be able to increase its awareness of the environmental impact of its products, as well as communicate such environmental impact transparently, using a credible and internationally recognized tool. This tool, known as EPD (Environmental Product Declaration), provides a complete overview of the effect that a product has, throughout its life cycle, on a large number of environmental aspects: from its impact on global warming, eutrophication and acidification, to the use of resources, ozone layer depletion and many others.


Most of the Gypsotech® plasterboards have obtained NF certification, a fundamental requisite for the French market. NF certification is issued by CSTB Paris, in accordance with NF certification regulation 081 specified by AFNOR, the French standards organisation.
