Seven years ago, the BCF produced a Sustainable Development Policy, which set out the ambition for the industry to drive best practice in the economic, social and environmental elements of sustainability.

Quality products protect the environment

"Our members have demonstrated through this landmark report that the UK’s coatings, printing inks and wallcoverings manufacturers provide quality products which protect the environment, conserve resources, enhance lifestyle and communicate information” said Tom Bowtell, BCF’s Chief Executive.

Over 50 case studies included

The report showcases examples of how members of the British Coatings Federation have responded to the challenges outlined in the 2009 policy. There are over 50 case studies included in this substantial report, which is a must read for anyone with an interest in sustainability in the coatings industry.  Copies are available from the BCF or can be downloaded here, or by following the link on the Sustainable Development page of the BCF website
