Since 1888, Glasurit has stood for perfect quality and social and ecological responsibility, and has been committed to the reduction of CO2 emissions for several years.

Glasurit EcoBalance is certified according to the biomass balance approach, in which a portion of the fossil resources is replaced by renewable raw materials, such as bio-naphtha or biogas from organic waste or vegetable oils, right at the beginning of the production process. This share of biomass is mathematically allocated to the new product line for automotive refinish products according to a certified method. By applying this calculation model, 100% of fossil resources can be replaced by renewable resources. 

"EcoBalance is here to revolutionize environmental impact while also improving efficiency," said Dr. Rahel Reichmann, Global Sustainability Manager Refinish Coatings. "At Glasurit, we believe in our customers and in their sustainable success by helping them use EcoBalance products. These products empower our customers with faster processes, less material consumption and, in turn, greater efficiency while reducing CO2 emissions. In addition, our customers will get the premium quality they know and expect from Glasurit. They also get the opportunity to verifiably reduce their CO2 footprint and their environmental impact with no loss of quality".
