Paint360 delivers environmental impact through social enterprise.
It is estimated that 55 million litres of unwanted paint is generated in the UK year on year with the vast majority going to landfill or incineration. Paint360 was set up to turn this problem into a resource while also recycling all paint pots to save carbon.
One litre of re-engineered paint saves enough embedded carbon to drive a transit van 5 miles carbon-free. Paint360’s solution is to collect unwanted paint from manufacturers, waste management companies, councils and contractors and re-engineer it into premium products, delivering a true closed loop service to their clients and helping them work towards their Net Zero targets and BREEAM initiatives (the leading sustainability assessment method for projects, infrastructure and buildings).
The firm is also committed to creating job opportunities for young people with barriers to employment as the core of their workforce.
