Miko is a leading Italian company within the microfiber market. Founded in 1997, it quickly revolutionized the industry by creating Dinamic by Miko, the first ecological microfiber with unique characteristics suitable for a variety of applications.
Dinamica is produced using recycled polyester with an innovative water-based manufacturing process in which no harmful chemical solvents are used. Miko has created three solutions for the automotive market: Dinamica Auto; Dinamica Auto Stretch; and Dinamica Wide, all with recyclable microfibers that are environmentally-friendly and comply with the highest standards.
These microfibers have been chosen by leading OEMs for their car interiors thanks to their green credentials, unrivalled technical qualities and incomparable aesthetic features; perfect for seats and backrests, as well as for dashboards, door panels, roof lining, steering wheels, gear sticks and sun visors.
Over the years, Miko has demonstrated its constant and active commitment to preventing and minimizing the impacts of its processes and products on the environment, a commitment to which the adopted Environmental Policy bears witness.
Miko’s headquorters in Gorizia has a photovoltaic plant on its rooftop; this means every 1 megawatt of enegry used saves almost 450 t of CO2 emissions entering the atmosphere per year.
In July 2012, Dinamica obtained EPD certification, the most advanced Environmental Product Declaration for products. This has laid the basis of a bigger project, completed in June 2013, with EPD Process Certification. This gives Miko the ability to internally handle the management of EPD data involved in the verification procedure, and issue new EPDs for registration.
As evidence of Miko’s commitment to the environment, in July 2013 the company was awarded National Champion for Italy, and selected for The Millicom Award for Environmental & Corporate Sustainability category in the 2013-14 European Business Awards.
