Message from the MD & CEO  

For us at Asian Paints, FY 2015-16 was about taking stock of our sustainability interventions, assessing the gaps and strategising ways of bridging them. FY 2016-17 has been about surpassing targets and setting more challenging ones in all areas of sustainability.

This year, we have replenished more fresh water than what we consumed in our decorative business units. This has been possible through our continuous efforts in:

Reducing our fresh water consumption in non-product applications

Groundwater recharge through various rainwater harvesting structures.

We have invested in real-time energy monitoring systems which will lead energy savings in our operations in future. We are continuously increasing renewable energy contribution in our overall energy consumption.

We have focused on reduce, re-use & recycle programmes in our manufacturing units which have reduced material losses.

Our International Business Units (IBUs), too, have posted reductions in water and energy consumption.

We continue to design and improve strong processes in all matters of safety. We have upgraded infrastructure for improving workplace safety. We have launched various safety programmes that improve and drive behaviour based safety in all our employees.

Asian Paints is committed to develop products that are safe, durable and have minimal environmental impact.

Green Assure: our self-certification for premium products is an example of our commitment to develop, and market green products.

We strive to improve the well-being of local communities by focussing on Education, Health & Hygiene, Water Management and Vocational Training.

 

Asian Paints Colour Academies impart requisite skills to women so that they can undertake painting assignments on their own.
