Beckers publishes sustainability report and presents 2030 sustainability strategy
Coatings company Beckers has published its 2019 sustainability report. The company regards its newly launched 2030 sustainability strategy a major milestone.
The report gives a picture of last year’s activities. Among the topics are background stories on the multi-national stakeholder workshop, partnering for change with customers and suppliers, the company's climate impact and steps towards circular economy as well as the progress with the social sustainability roadmap, showing first results in improved gender diversity in hiring.
"Sustainable businesses are more resilient"
Beckers Group’s Chief Human Resources Officer Judith Jungmann comments: "At Beckers we want to add positive impact in everything we do. We believe that sustainable businesses are more resilient, better prepared for the future and that building a sustainable company now is more important than ever. With our 2030 Sustainability Strategy, we are setting the pace and contributing to transforming our industry.”
Nicklas Augustsson, Global Sustainability Director at Beckers, adds: "We have made significant progress in our sustainability work throughout 2019. Our multi-national stakeholder workshop served as one of the foundations for our 2030 strategy. Our efforts to reduce our climate impact, also in the value chain, show in the switch to intermodal transport wherever we can, and our approach to material and functional sustainability of our coatings is something we have been working on for a long time. With our social sustainability roadmap in place since 2018 we now have great results in employee growth and gender diversity.”
The market demands modern, high-performance, flawless paints that possess specified properties. Where deviations from set points occur, the cause must be investigated and the error must be remedied. What "standard methods" don't disclose is why a particular coating either meets or fails to meet a requirement. Thus the author presents modern analytical techniques and their applications in the coatings industry that answer further complex questions. The information in this book can be used for performing failure analysis, production control and quality control, and also meet the requirements of modern high-level quality management. An excellent combination of theory and practice for formulators, paint engineers and applied technologists seeking a sound basic introduction to instrumental paint analysis and concrete answers to everyday problems.
