At Dulux, we believe sustainability is everyone's business. Anything worth doing depends on a stable climate, balanced environment, and strong communities. Equally, everything we do also has an impact on people and our planet - from choosing a better paint to re-using instead of throwing away. For more detail, check out some of our initiatives below.
We're committed to providing more eco-conscious and sustainable products.
The Dulux envirO₂® range has been independently verified and recognised by Global GreenTag™, one of the most trusted and globally recognised eco-certification programs.Dulux envirO₂®-->
We are proud to offer our Paint Take-Back scheme, whereby purchasers can return their unwanted paint containers and packaging to be consciously recycled and reused. Simply return your left over paint and paint packaging to any of our Dulux Trade Centre and selected Guthrie Bowron stores nationwide and we will recycle, reuse or dispose of it in an environmentally friendly manner.
Some materials used to make paint contain volatile organic compounds (VOC) and even very low VOC paints can have high chemical emissions, also known as fumes, and are released from paint into the air while painting. You can often smell fumes for days or weeks after painting, but even if you can't smell anything they can still be there. Dulux has been at the forefront of low VOC paint innovation, introducing low VOC paints such as Dulux UltraAir®, Dulux envirO₂® and Dulux Wash&Wear®.
Dulux continually develops sustainable solutions to help reduce environmental impact and meet industry standards. Our paints with GreenStar®, Eco-Choice Aotearoa, GreenGuard and Global GreenTag™ certifications can contribute to achieving green building project approvals.
Here at Dulux we take our involvement within the community very seriously, and are committed to providing support and products to many community groups and partners. Learn more about our partnerships or make a request for a free paint donation below.
