What Are The Negative Impacts Of Paint Factories And How Those Are Taken Into Consideration?
The main environmental effects of paint production are the energy used during the manufacturing of the product, emissions and wastes generated during the manufacture, as well as the distribution of raw materials, packaging materials and finished products. We aim to be more energy-efficient and increase the use of renewable energy, reduce the VOC and CO2 emission of production as well as decrease the amount of waste and increase the share of recyclable waste.
Tikkurila aims to reduce the environmental impact of logistics by choosing environmentally friendly logistics, centralizing transportation and improving transportation safety and efficiency. Moreover, we pay attention to optimizing cargoes and transportation routes, and to the loading of vehicles. Another factor impacting the environmental effects of our logistics is that Tikkurila has production units and logistics centres in many countries, which reduces the distance of transportation. In the selection of our logistics partners, the defining factors include safety and the ability of the transport company to provide more environmentally-friendly options.
