Stories of


In an industry intrinsically tied to chemicals and carbon, embracing sustainability is a complex, multi-layered endeavor. From rethinking what “sustainable products” means, to fostering more collaborative and insightful relationships with our supply chain, we are committed to a deeper, more transparent understanding of what true sustainability entails.



Consistent with last year, we have colleagues working across 25 locations in 17 countries.


Renewable energy

Continuously working toward increasing our use of renewable energy in a smart way. This year we increased our use by 2%-pts compared to last year, primarily by switching to renewable electricity.


Metric tons of product produced

Our volumes remained low due to a slower construction year, while we focused on quality deliveries and ensuring satisfied customers.


Sales from net-sustainable products

We see value in the relaunch and validation of the Beckers Sustainability Index (BSI) and in 2023 we increased sales of BSI Achiever products this year by 7%-pts.

Raising the standard of care for our world

We take our responsibility towards future generations seriously and we are committed to not only improving our own performance, but we’re also encouraging our partners throughout the value chain – from suppliers to customers – to join us on this journey.

Making high performance coatings and exceeding customer expectations for over 150 years has its share of stories. We continuously improve the materials used and the functionality in our products. This year we have some of the most exciting stories how our product innovations have the potential to transform our industry.


People are at the heart of our products, production and profits. Safety, mental and physical health, and leaving a positive impact in the communities where we operate makes the existence of our business go beyond the surface.


Our operations and work in the supply chain strives to improve our environmental and social impacts. Resource efficiency together with responsible procurement turns our efforts into a positive ripple effect in our value chain.
