Born from a path that initially focused its attention on the paradigm of sustainable development and then grow up to embrace a broader project that involves the company as a whole. Born with a governance strongly oriented to a sustainable vision and with a direct approach and wanted to corporate citizenship.

Sustainable production

Social responsibility in Mazzali is now increasingly a strategic vision and a cultural approach to business But social responsibility and sustainability are and were, also and above all, the fundamental drivers of growth and differentiation. They have impacted on intangible assets such as promotion and development of the company, have allowed a strong differentiation compared to competitors, generating an important competitive advantage, have launched a significant growth in volumes, were a major vehicle for improvement and growth in relations with the community, have enabled the company to acquire expertise and improve its offer thanks to a continuous and constructive confrontation with stakeholders The choice of sustainable production has had significant impacts on the supply and placement of Mazzali. Since 1998, when Mazzali launched "Green Island", the green brand that gathered a collection of products with low environmental impact., the sales volume of this line have grown so that they then changed the way of being industry. Of them Mazzali supply becomes increasingly rich and articulate up to embrace a broader project that involves the company as a whole, with a governance strongly oriented to a sustainable vision of the company and with a direct approach and wanted to corporate citizenship . From this point of view, the company research has increasingly focused, in collaboration with stakeholders, towards products that have a reduced environmental impact. Three guidelines: production unit, product, painting Production unit: - We have made significant investments for reducing “volatile solvent emission” during the process of painting (overspray. ..) through the combined use of “water curtains spraying booth” and air intake pipelines. - The water, after the process of painting, is collected in special tanks and entrusted, for its disposal, a specialized company. The air pipelines have special suction filters killing. - We have implemented an ongoing research project to reduce the amount of paint sprayed on


every single piece (subject to the requirements of durability, resistance, aesthetic) with the aim of reducing the amount of volatile solvent emission. - We have implemented a plan for the waste processing: wood, special materials, paper ‌ . All our production waste are recycled or disposed of, without harming the environment. - We have reduced noise pollution through substitutions and changes of the fixtures and fittings. The product: The wood is our main raw material, our effort is to ensure its availability for the future generations and for ourselves. In addition, we have put a ban on material labeled as toxic or harmful to health and to reduce the use of glues containing formaldehyde. With this in mind: - In the wardrobes we use 95% wood reforestation program and 5% wood from areas whose governments have signed a commitment to reforestations. - In the beds we use only wood reforestation program. - The glues used in the structure of wardrobes are 50% water based glues and 50% glues urea based in class E1 with low formaldehyde emission. - The choice of building the doors, structure and shelves in sandwich compound with honeycomb and solid wood, reduced by 98%, compared to a doors in chipboard, the use of synthetic glues containing formaldehyde. - For the realization of the honeycomb we use recycled cardboard and the glue is made with vegetable-based The painting: One of the most serious forms of air pollution are volatile solvent emission, both outdoor and indoor, that are generated in the process of painting. If these solvents contain, among other things, toxic substances, can create irreversible environmental damage and serious damage to health of the person. With this in mind: - We have banned any kind of paint that contains labeled toxic substances, particularly lead, asbestos, formaldehyde. - We realized water based finishes, using methods that combined water + UV + acrylic paint, and open pore essence that reduce by 75% the emission of solvents compared to the traditional lacquered. - The internal parts of wardrobes are painted only with UV paint (98% reduction of volatile solvent emission compared to the traditional lacquered. - We have worked out the finish "100% Water" that boasts the LIFE brand, the EU’s instrument supporting environmental and nature conservation projects, and certifications UNI EN 71-3 in the paint and to the safety of toys and 97/48/EC as paint suitable contact food for an absolute guarantee of protection of consumer health and the environment.

A choice of high quality

100% WOOD ‌ EMOTION AND BEAUTY, DURATION AND VALUE. The pleasure to touch, see, and feel that only wood can offer. Wood is nature, value and durability. Wood has many capabilities: it absorbs and releases moisture, has acoustic and thermal insulation, it does not conduct electromagnetic waves, it has a very high durability, it is recyclable or re-usable. Wood is the only material that man can produce ecologically through replanting. Wood, furthermore, continues to live and breathe, even when cut, improving the quality of home life. For this Mazzali uses real wood veneer, honeycomb sandwich panels with solid wood frame, plywood and blockborad.


100% HONEYCOMB SANDWICH PANEL WITH SOLID WOOD FRAME. The doors, slides and shelves of the wardrobes and bookcases are made exclusively in honeycomb sandwich panel with solid wood frame. Thanks to the perimeter structure of solid wood with honeycomb, the veneer guarantees maximum lightness thus causing less stress on mechanisms and on the hinges, maximum duration and maximum resistance, as screws and joints work directly on the solid wood.

100% PLYWOOD … STRENGTH, DUBILITY, FLEXIBILITY AND NEUTRALITY. The beds, sets and wardrobe cabins are made in plywood and multilayer. The plywood and multilayer are composed of multiple overlapping sheets or strips of wood fiber cross. The materials are excellent for their resistance, durability, breathability, hygroscopicity and neutrality in magnetic fields. To ensure maximum stability in wood veneer essence, plywood and multilayer may be counterplated with a thin sheet of MDF.

100% COLOUR … ENDLESS COLOURS, INFINITE SOLUTIONS. Colour is the expression of our emotions, our passions, our being, our outcome. Mazzali offers a choice of 124 standard colours, in seven different finishes, from water colours to lacquered, tactile oak, antique, to decapè, because above all, each product must be personalized to the best and most personal requirements.
