Sustainability Goals

Our contribution to a sustainable future

As a leading international supplier of paints and coatings systems, our core mission has always been to protect substrates and extend the lifespan of objects. This proactive approach not only prevents premature replacement but also preserves value and conserves resources.

At KANSAI HELIOS, we consider it our duty to contribute to and align with the European Green Deal. As an industrial chemical company, we are committed to championing a better tomorrow.

As one of the largest full-range suppliers, we provide our customers with a diverse array of paints and coatings – all from a single source. This consolidation shortens supply chains and reduces resource consumption.

We aim to establish sustainable operations and promote responsible consumption for positive impacts on the environment, society and the economy. Globally, we create employment opportunities and ensure that our working conditions adhere to the highest safety and social standards.

Our initiatives support social justice, inclusion, and thriving communities. In recognition of our societal responsibilities, we donate every year to local children’s facilities, children’s health initiatives, and various youth sports programs. By leveraging knowledge, skills, and talent, we drive innovation and positive societal impact.

We emphasize ethical standards, honesty, and accountability to build trust, credibility, and lasting relationships.

Our sustainability goals are anchored in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Out of the 17 goals we have integrated eight into our five sustainability objectives, which we aim to achieve by 2030:
