Sustainability is One of Dulux’s Key Considerations as a Business

Sustainability is at the core of the Dulux business, and is driven by internal and external stakeholders. As a paints and coatings manufacturer, a variety of chemicals are used in the making of its products. However, there’s always an endeavour to make the production process eco-friendlier.

From advocating for industry-leading safety practices and reducing harmful ingredients to focusing on less landfill waste and contributing to local communities, Dulux strongly believes in making positive sustainability impacts and meets the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard.

For exteriors, Dulux concentrates on the long-term sustainability of substrates that paint covers, by protecting surfaces from UV, salt, and other climate issues. For interiors, the focus is on making coatings that are washable, so that surfaces look clean and fresh for longer.

Dulux is recognised by Global GreenTag, the third party eco labelling scheme, following the norms of the UN’s sustainability goals to evaluate products and production. Two of its environment-friendly products: Dulux UltraAir, and Dulux envirO2 have been certified.

The UltraAir paint product has ultra-low chemical emissions, for those who care about the level of chemicals released from a coating while it is drying. The low level of emissions gives extra peace of mind to people who continue living in their homes while they get painted. 


envirO2 has a low level of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These are harmful chemicals that evaporate at room temperature. Even with reduced VOCs, the product quality is not compromised.

Reduced VOCs, while maintaining product standards is an essential part of the Dulux business model. Dulux continues to prioritise research and development (R&D) so that the company and its customers can enjoy improved environmental outcomes without sacrificing the product quality.
