We believe our performance paints are market leaders in terms of environmental impact.
The unequivocal durability of our products and five year product guarantee, but a life expectancy well beyond, all result in a reduction in the number of redecorations required during the life cycle of a building.
Consider the environmental impact of a redecoration cycle,involving the use of paint and other decorating materials, with the raw ingredients, the manufacturing process with all its ancillary environmental downsides, the transportation and also the generation of waste and its disposal. There is also the actual energy expended in lighting and heating of the building being decorated, and the energy attributed to the workforce carrying out the redecoration.
EU directive 2008/98/EU, enforced by the Waste Regulations 2011 in the UK, requires all organisations to abide by the waste hierarchy, of which the optimal stage is prevention of waste. A reduction in redecoration cycles ensures full compliance with these Regulations. Click here to visit DEFRA for more information.
Not only are there significant environmental benefits derived from reducing redecoration cycles, but also benefits of cost savings, both direct and indirect. Over the full life cycle ,we are confident that we can present a greener and more cost effective solution to your decorating needs.
