"We are proud to be recognized for our innovative products and services; safe and sustainable manufacturing processes; and strong corporate governance practices," said Robert Bryant, president and CEO of Axalta. "Today, there are many socially responsible investors who are keenly aware of the environmental, social, and corporate governance practices of companies and make their investment decisions based on these important ESG factors. They view it the same way we do: it's good business and it's good for the world we live in."
Recent Axalta product innovations that demonstrate this commitment to sustainability include:
- Axalta's Fast Cure Low Energy patented technology, which cuts application process times in body shops by up to 50 percent and reduces energy consumption by up to 70 percent while still achieving the best quality repair;
- Axalta's Voltatex 4224 impregnating resin, which delivers significant improvements in thermal conductivity, enabling higher motor efficiency and reduced size and weight of electric devices;
- Axalta's AquaEC™ 6000 series of waterborne electrocoats used in automotive and industrial applications, which provide superior corrosion protection, minimize VOC emissions and reduces energy use through lower curing temperatures.
"Protecting the environment, being good corporate citizens, and having a strong focus on integrity, ethics and safety are central to Axalta's business model," Bryant said. "We continue to work closely with our suppliers throughout the supply chain to ensure responsible sourcing practices are used globally. And, we remain committed to developing sustainable coatings, while also increasing efficiency and productivity for our customers for the long term."
