How is the health and environmental impacts of the development and manufacturing process of paints are taken into consideration?
Quality, durability and safety are our guiding principles – for raw material selection and product development, as well as throughout our operations. The raw materials selected by Tikkurila greatly affect the environmental impact, quality and safety of the paints. Our product development selects raw materials based on the purpose of use and the properties required from the product. We are constantly looking for options that are safer for both health and the environment, studying the use of renewable raw materials, and increasing the share of water-borne products of our product offering. When we introduce a raw material, we employ extremely stringent criteria with regard to the quality, durability, functionality and safety of the material.
