International. The World Coatings Council announced the release of its inaugural report, Sustainability in the Global Paints and Coatings Industry.
The report emphasizes the critical role that coatings and global industry play in contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as framed by nine specific SDGs on which industry can have the greatest impact:
• Good health and well-being
• Quality education
• Clean Water and Sanitation
• Decent work and economic growth
• Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
• Sustainable Cities and Communities
• Responsible Consumption and Production
• Climate action
• Life underwater
With examples supporting the World Coatings Council's sustainability charter, the global report underscores that coatings are essential to making products and built infrastructure more sustainable by providing strength and durability.
They must provide critical performance properties for safe and healthy communities and play a critical role for applications in the health and food sectors, among many others.
The report also highlights the industry's efforts to achieve resource efficiency in production processes, consideration of raw material consumption and implementation of health and safety measures to ensure decent work and economic growth.
