An ambitious vision
Our vision is to lead the paint industry into a more sustainable future and have a positive impact on the planet and on society. Our ambitions set a new benchmark we hope others will try to follow.
We have set ourselves stretching targets across the three key areas of sustainability: economic, environment and social, addressing the issues and impacts most critical to our industry. We seek to work in partnership with our suppliers, our customers and leading-edge thinkers to shape the paint market of the future.
As we detail our commitments and achievements in the following pages, you will see that sustainability is now central to everything we do.
Determined to be no.1 in sustainable solutions
Our aim is to provide market-leading solutions that enable our customers and partners to work more sustainably, without compromising performance of the quality of the finish.
To this end we invest in constant research and development to create innovative new solutions and enhancing products.
Working to halve our environmental footprint
We have targeted a reduction of 50% in our CO2 emissions, VOCs and waste by 2020 across the total value chain associated with our products.
We are continuously improving how we source our materials, run our operations, and transport our products and people to reduce our own impact on the environment.
We also seek to improve resource efficiency by closing the loop on post-use paint and packaging.
Positively colouring 1 million lives
We believe in using our products and resources to enhance lives and make a positive difference, encouraging our people to be good neighbours and create active partnerships with local and global communities.
