The focus on design lead the company to receive international awards for its products including the iF Design Awards in Hannover, Germany for four consecutive years.

Deca has a great concern for the environment and together with other business; they founded the ONG GreenBuilding Council Brazil (GBC Brazil) in 2007 and GreenBuilding Council Paraguay (GBC Paraguay), to assist in the development of products, processes and standards related to sustainable construction. Deca was the only company in its industry to take this initiative. They also have recycling programs for re-use of water, especially in relation to the ceramic production where they achieve 50% water re-use.

The alignment of the practices of Deca’s manufacturing facilities to principles and standards spread widely throughout the world is a reflection of the commitment of Deca to environmental advances. Since 2008, the company is a signatory of the Global Compact, an initiative of the United Nations (UN) which aims to encourage the business sector to adopt corporate socially responsible practices that promote a more inclusive and sustainable economy. Thus, Deca governs their activities based on the ten principles that characterise the treaty for the defense of human rights, labour rights, environmental protection and anti-corruption.

For Deca to be a great brand it not only has to create innovative products with great quality, it also has to be aware of the impact of each activity on the environment and society as a whole and to have as a major goal, the aim to build a better future. That is why they focus their efforts on actions for sustainability and invest in research to improve their production processes and productivity using natural resources ensuring a low environmental impact.
