Green Opportunities for Painters & Decorators

Posted on: 2011-09-28 15:07:44

The Government’s Low Carbon Construction Action Plan will provide many opportunities under Green Deal for painting and decorating contractors.  But how many have got their green credentials in place ready to take up these opportunities?

The Reasons for Going Green

Customers are increasingly turning to environmentally friendly products and services.  For painting and decorating contractors, this means solvent-free paint & wallpaper and using alternatives under UK & EU regulations.   

Local authorities have carbon reduction targets and are therefore particularly keen to use only environmentally aware contractors with green credentials.  Therefore, sourcing eco-paints and thinners, and all other products through green supply chains that use green manufacturers will be crucial in your business planning.

Green Deal Supply Chain

Green Deal will create millions of refurbishing projects on domestic and commercial property in the UK as a result of their innovative eco-retrofitting incentives for building owners.  Painting and decorating contractors will already be on the supply chains of some big players who have repositioned themselves into being Green Deal Providers.  As a painter and decorator, you need to start business planning and prepare your own environmental strategy for the global shift to low carbon products.
