With this belief, it will advance various initiatives. It will also build a sustainable business by actively using innovative technologies.

Environmental Strategy

Addressing Nippon Paint Group’s most material sustainability impacts is a key imperative and priority for the organization to ensure Maximization of Shareholder Value (MSV). Within the sustainability aspect of the environment, the identified priority material impacts for the business are climate change and resources and environment, especially waste and water.

Our approach to achieving MSV

During 2022 each Partner Company Group (PCG: PC group by region/ business) has continued to make progress on their individual ambitions, targets, and priorities within each of these material impact areas. This has been supported by a newly established Environment and Safety working group comprising senior environment and safety leaders from each PCG, that has focused on benchmarking, sharing best practice, and agreeing common metrics to improve understanding of consolidated performance progress for material environmental impacts.
Full implementation of these metrics across all PCGs will take some time, but good progress has been made during the year, including new metrics for renewable energy, renewable electricity, and water consumption. Future metrics will include Scope 3 carbon for additional PCGs, water withdrawal and consumption in regions of high water stress, and VOC emissions. The work on metrics during the year has also included improved accuracy of collected data, leading to some revisions for prior year reported performance. Supporting and enabling improved management and understanding of the impacts, risks, and opportunities for both climate change and resources and the environment, will be the primary focus of the working group in the coming year.
