Says its products are now registered in the Manual of Green Building Materials, issued by the Government of Dubai
Hempel, supplier of decorative, marine and protective coatings, has announced that it has fortified its range of eco-friendly products in line with the company’s “Green Revolution” initiative, which it says, ultimately aims to reduce the impact of its operations on human health and the environment. Hempel further revealed that some of its products are now registered and listed in the Manual of Green Building Materials issued by the Government of Dubai.
According to Hempel, its products have been classified under three categories in the manual: light colours on the outside of buildings; low-emitting material – paints and coatings; and lead or heavy metal-free material. The company further announced that it has generated a strong response during its participation at the recently held World Eco Construct Abu Dhabi, wherein the company showcased its award-winning products, including the biocide-free Hempasil X3, the Topaz range and the energy-saving Contex Thermoguard coating. These products, claimed Hempel, covered its green initiative from three angles – safe and green formulation, low VOCs and no toxic ingredients.
Mark Rees, Group Vice President and Area Director, Hempel Middle East, said: “The Green Revolution initiative aims to establish the Hempel brand as paint supplier of choice for eco-friendly products that offer enhanced health and environmental benefits. It is therefore our continuing thrust to develop high-performance products that comply with international standards and local government regulations related to safety and environmental compliance.”
Laurence Brown, Country Manager, Hempel, UAE, added: “The inclusion of Hempel products in the Manual of Green Building Materials of the Government of Dubai strongly reaffirms our commitment to offer sustainable products and solutions that have no adverse effect on human health and the environment.”
