Dear Readers,
Asian Paints is committed to creating sustainable and long-term business growth, while shaping positive change for its customers, the communities it operates in, and the environment.

Our Sustainability Report FY2018-19 provides information on key sustainability initiatives across different shades of sustainability – product stewardship, environment, our people and the society.

With our experience and technical expertise in developing paints and its intermediates, we optimise technology and processes to develop sustainable products and solutions.

Our approach to sustainable development is incorporated into our business strategy. An integral part of that sustainable journey is our continuous endeavour to conserve water and optimise its use. We continue to focus on reducing our energy consumption and make investments in renewable energy footprint. This has contributed to the reduction of carbon footprint at the manufacturing facilities. We are constantly involved in waste reduction initiatives and responsible management and disposal of waste. We have made a start in fulfilling our extended producer responsibility obligations with regard to post-consumer plastic packaging. We have also begun our journey to conserve flora and fauna.

Occupational health and safety is our top priority. We have taken steps to strengthen the operational control and management processes. We intend to achieve the highest level of safety awareness and influence the safe behaviour of our employees.

Our social impact interventions continue to make a positive contribution to the society, focusing on education, health and hygiene, water management and vocational training.
