Every year, through the sponsorship of the Sustainability Award, Axalta Coating Systems celebrates the best of the best in the industry, recognising hard work, innovation and strong sustainable business practices.
In 2016, our commitment to encouraging sustainable industry practices continues and strengthens not only with the sponsorship of the 2016 Axalta Sustainability Award but also as one of two platinum sponsors of the newly named Paint and Panel Bodyshop Awards 2016 (previously known as Paint & Panel Autobody Repairer Awards).
“As a global company, we strive to minimise the impact of our operations, and ensure that our products help our customers meet their own sustainability goals. The 2016 Axalta Sustainability Award is a perfect platform for us to demonstrate our dedication to supporting and encouraging a sustainable future for the industry,” says Managing Director of Axalta Coating Systems, Steven Brett.
Sustainability within the automotive repair industry is key but it is more than just about being green. Keeping up with staff training, developing forward-thinking business strategies, investing in new equipment, tools and processes to increase efficiency and looking to reduce waste and energy usage will strengthen bodyshops’ position in the market place, whilst helping to future proof our industry.
The Axalta Sustainability Award recognises and celebrates forward-thinking businesses in the automotive repair industry. The Award entries are open to all bodyshops across Australia regardless of size or paint system used. You do not have to be an Axalta customer. A website is essential to being eligible to be nominated for the Award. To nominate a business visit www.paintandpanel.com.au/awards. All nominees (self-nominated or otherwise) will need to fill out a form to demonstrate their sustainable business initiatives and address some of the eligibility criteria.
