“Sustainability is the beneficial actions which you take today that in the future have the
same or better benefits.”

The environment is becoming an ever more important issue within the construction industry and within our everyday lives. With new buildings now being scrutinised for their environmental impact, it is up to us, the contractors and architects to achieve the lowest environmental impact possible.

SD Painting Contractors Ltd are dedicated to reducing its own impact on the environment and the impact of its products. As an organisation that is involved in many large scale decorating projects it is paramount for the evolution of the company that it has a positive effect on the environment rather than a negative. SD Painting Contractors Ltd will therefore always aim to take a proactive approach to environmental issues.

Sustainability and reduction in waste are bywords for a happy and productive working environment, which is particularly important for a growing organisation in a future that is dependent on a healthy environment. In order to stay one step ahead, SD Painting Contractors Ltd has made a commitment that will focus on important issues and ensure a safer future for everyone.

• Through our in-house training we will share our knowledge and awareness of client expectations and environmental impacts.
• Encourage all employees to become environmentally aware and proactive.
• We will reduce our carbon footprint by lowering levels of energy usage.
• We will take a proactive approach to environmental issues on all decorating products and paints which contain high level VOC content, reducing them to solvent free and lower VOC emissions.
