World Coatings Council publishes first global sustainability report
The report highlights the global industry’s ongoing sustainability efforts to advance technologies in coating science and manufacturing, while minimising impacts on human health and the environment. The report emphasises the critical role coatings and the global industry play in contributing to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Providing resistance and durability
The report underscores that coatings are essential to making products and our built infrastructure more sustainable by providing resistance and durability; providing critical performance properties for safe and healthy communities; and serving a critical role for applications in the health and food sectors, among many others. The report also highlights the industry’s efforts to achieve resource efficiency in production processes, consideration of raw material consumption, and implementation of health and safety measures to ensure decent work and economic growth.
