Reducing the waste associated with the production and sale of our products remains a key area of focus. Our integrated and structured approach tackles all aspects of waste reduction – from product and packaging design through to coming up with innovative ways to ensure that any waste produced is either re-used or responsibly disposed of.
Year-on-year results show that the amount of waste per ton of paint produced is decreasing. The reasons are several: better planning, not overproducing, introducing storage tanks for incoming raw materials, reuse of packaging materials, cryogenic technology, recirculating cleaning solvent and reusing obsolete paint. In 2022 we again reduced our landfill waste significantly.
