Sustainability is central to Axalta’s business. When we refer to sustainability, we mean a wide range of environmental, social and economic responsibilities that can arise from our operations. Being a good neighbour and an engaged business partner are fundamental to our growth and success.
We manage our facilities in ways that are intended to minimise the impact of our operations across our 46 manufacturing centres with sophisticated environment, health and safety protocols. Our coatings are designed to serve the sustainability goals of our customers, helping their products last longer, enabling their operations to run more efficiently, and providing ways to save energy, reduce waste and be more productive. Axalta’s low-VOC, waterborne and powder products produce fewer targeted hazardous emissions.
As part of our commitment to sustainability, Axalta’s 2014/2015 Sustainability Report catalogues Axalta’s achievements and provides an overview of areas that will benefit from improved operating performance, monitoring, and data collection. The report was prepared in keeping with the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) G4 guidelines and in accordance with the GRI “Core” reporting level. Axalta’s GRI Index, published separately, identifies the extent to which we fulfil each GRI indicator.
