For public sector projects, demonstration of social value (as defined by the Social Value Act) is a key part
of the tender process. Government bodies must choose suppliers who can provide community investment
which will have a positive impact on those living in the area.
Working collaboratively with both public bodies and contractors, in return for specification of AkzoNobel
products, we can offer a range of social value initiatives to support and enhance the lives of residents; from
training opportunities to local community painting projects.
To find out more about how we can work with you to add real social value, please download our Social
Value brochure or contact your AkzoNobel representative.
Donate your leftover paint
Did you know than an estimated 50 million litres of the 320 million litres of paint sold in the UK each year go to waste? This paint is either thrown away or stored in homes or garages despite over 50% of it still being usable. Community RePaint is a UK wide paint reuse network, sponsored by Dulux, that collects leftover paint and redistributes it at a low cost to those in social need, communities and charities.
For 25 years Dulux has supported Community RePaint, transforming places and lives with leftover paint. You can also get involved by recycling your leftover paint. Head to the Community RePaint website to find out more.
