Axalta ISCCAxalta Coating Systems has become the first manufacturer within the powder coatings industry to receive International Sustainability and Carbon Certification Plus (ISCC Plus) for biobased feedstock sourcing practices.

Developed to support the transition towards carbon-neutrality and create a sustainable bioeconomy that minimises waste production, the certification assesses compliance with key sustainability principles aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, which are aimed at ending poverty and protecting the planet.

Axalta earned ISCC Plus following a thorough third-party audit of its supply chain and production processes, which validated its ability to successfully produce a selection of its coating formulations using bio-based resins. Such solutions are identical to incumbent polyester resins derived from fossil fuels in terms of quality and properties but enable, on average, a CO2 emissions reduction of 25 per cent, accounting for small variances between coating types. This allows environmentally conscious decision makers within industrial markets to access coatings solutions from sustainable and fully traceable sources.

The use of bio-based solutions, which come from non-food organic waste and contain significantly lower levels of embodied carbon, offers the cheapest and fastest path for customers to reduce scope three emissions, making them particularly attractive when reporting on scope three emissions becomes mandatory within the next few years.
