Understanding Legislation

On a world-wide scale

Public awareness of environmental issues is now greater than ever;

  • Climate change and the link with Green House Gas (GHG) emissions is high on the political agenda
  • A knock-on effect of this is increased concern over all environmental issues; the environmental footprint of all man’s activities is now under ever growing scrutiny
  • The leisure boating industry is no exception – attention from public, press and government legislators (new regulations) is now intense
  • There is pressure to prove that the leisure industry is environmentally sustainable

From a coatings supplier’s perspective

As a coatings supplier, we are challenged to produce effective products which;

  • Are compliant with ever tightening environmental and safety legislation
  • Result in minimal impact on the environment
  • Are ‘sustainable’ in the environment and the marketplace
  • Still deliver the performance and aesthetics that our customers require

Policy Focus

The key elements in our environmental policy focus on;

  • Product design
  • Compliance with environmental legislation
  • Solvent (VOC) emissions
  • Antifouling paints
  • Product Stewardship

Understanding, considering and complying with legislation is fundamental to each of these key elements.
