A positive impact 

Our activity impacts society and the environment. Through high-quality products and services as well as our professional expertise, we can protect the environment, enhance the sustainability of building stock and infrastructure, and make spaces more beautiful – thus having a positive impact on the living environment and people’s well-being.
Our goal is to be the most desirable paint producer for green building.

Minimising negative footprint

We are driving our products and services towards maximum performance while striving to minimise the negative environmental impact. ‘A Colourful Tomorrow’ is the company’s Sustainability programme, through which we are able to develop our responsibility efforts in a strategic manner.
The most environmentally significant aspects of our work relate to the raw materials of our products. In product development we take into account the environmental impact of products and painted surfaces during their life cycle. The environmental impact of the production of paints and coatings is comparatively small. However, we are continuously taking actions to improve our resource efficiency without compromising our products' quality, safety, and durability.
You can read about our sustainability on these pages and in our Sustainability Report. The Report presents Tikkurila's approach to sustainability and reporting referencing certain Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 standards.
