Tom Bowtell, CEO of the British Coatings Federation (BCF): Crown Paints has demonstrated a strong commitment to making its business more sustainable. This has been achieved through initiatives including energy and waste reductions, the creation of more sustainable products and by introducing a partnership with an onsite social enterprise.
This award comes less than 12 months after Crown Paints completed a major project, which saw big investment on the latest high-speed manufacturing system at Hull.
