Introducing The Glasurit Bodyshop Emissions Program

The use of solvent based paints within the Bodyshop industry has long been one of the contributors towards solvent emissions.

How to counteract and offset these solvent emissions in addition to proactively managing the associated negative image in your local community is an important consideration in relation to your business. Additionally leading OEMs and auto insurance companies, keen to promote their ‘green’ image, are increasingly looking to industry partners undertaking repair work which reduces solvent emissions as well as providing proactive environmental solutions. To date addressing the concerns of solvent emissions can be a time consuming and complex exercise for the Bodyshop industry – until now.

The use of Glasurit 90 LINE, the #1 waterborne product worldwide within your Bodyshop contributes towards improving air quality by releasing significantly fewer emissions which do not have a detrimental effect on air quality. Plus, they foster a cleaner, greener environment both for your Bodyshop and your staff.

In addition to our ongoing commitment in developing more environmentally friendly products, Glasurit has decided to take a proactive approach in offsetting the remaining greenhouse gas emissions within the painting process by creating an easy, cost-effective and environmentally friendly initiative – the Glasurit Bodyshop Emissions Program. Specifically designed for the industry, in proud partnership with one of the leading not-for-profit greenhouse gas emissions reduction organisations Carbon Neutral Australia, the Glasurit Bodyshop Emissions Program helps you turn your emissions into trees!

This program, together with our industry leading Glasurit 90 LINE waterborne system, continues to support our ongoing commitment to being NO.1 for the environment. Now together, we can all work towards a healthier environment.

“Carbon Neutral is committed to maximising biodiversity revegetation possibilities to ensure the best environmental outcomes are obtained.”

Matt Porter Chairman of the Board

How does the program work?

Selected Australian and New Zealand Glasurit 90 LINE customers will be invited to join the program to offset their annual Bodyshop solvent emissions. Membership contributions are invested into the Carbon Neutral Australia tree planting program which reduces greenhouse gases caused by solvent emissions.
