Different shades of green – delivering paint sustainability

Sustainability is the focus of the latest CPD, called ‘Different shades of green – delivering paint sustainability’, building on Crown Paints award-winning Earthbalance® programme.

The CPD looks at issues around paint and coatings and BREEAM including:

  • standardisation
  • products helping to extend maintenance cycles
  • carbon foot printing
  • integrated approach to sustainability and corporate social responsibility

Burning issues – the hazard of painted walls and ceilings

Other CPD modules include ‘Burning issues – the hazard of painted walls and ceilings,’ which broadens participants’ knowledge on the safety attributes of flame retardant coatings, as well as ‘Effective paint specification’ which explores the properties of paint and the different types of coatings and systems.

Crown Paints are industry experts in colour and 2 CPD modules are offered on the subject.

The Role Of Colour In Buildings

CPD covers colour psychology and the role it plays in creating atmosphere, effecting lighting and altering perceptions of dimensions and temperature. This CPD module is produced in a training video format and also provides guidance on creating and specifying colour schemes, as well as compliance with the Equality Act.

Colour In Education

This colour-focused CPD module explains how shade can be used to best effect within an educational environment. This CPD module addresses topics similar to the other colour programme, but explores them in a seminar format and within the context of the educational sector.

Usman Akhtar, Crown Paints’ Specification Sector Support Manager: “Our accredited training programme has been developed to provide specifiers with a broad range of information in an engaging format. It’s part of a complete service from Specification Services that is designed to support our professional clients through initiatives including Sustainable Smart Maintenance, safety and fire legislation, site specific programmes, colour schemes and BIM.”
