Sustainability for a Better Future

BE A GREEN LEADER

The Earth's environment is precious. We would like to raise our end customer awareness about a healthy environment by teaming up with you. As the market leader in coating technology, we are well aware of our global responsibility for the planet. At LEONHARD KURZ we have come to view our main task as protecting the natural balance. Only the equilibrium between mankind and the environment can create a healthy habitat for future generations.

For five decades now we have been working on our sustainability goal: A holistic KURZ lifecycle. Its main focus lies in the sustainable and sparing use of natural resources, as well as delivering top quality and increased efficiency for our customers. After all, the value chain begins with each individual product.

BE A GREEN LEADER

Sustainability shapes brands. To gain the upper hand, make a credible case along the value chain. As experts in surface finishing we deliver sound strategies because to us, as a family company, it matters to leave a better world for future generations. We follow strict environmental and safety standards around the world. We develop products and processes that conserve resources and provide cost-effective individual design freedom for surfaces – reflecting our focus on Design for Recycling. We help make product cycles as environmentally friendly as possible and assist our customers to be leaders in sustainability.

In addition, since 2021, we have been part of the UN Global Compact initiative for responsible corporate governance aimed at an inclusive, sustainable global economy. Within this framework, we follow the universal principles of the UN Global Compact and are involved in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and the fight against corruption.

Global Partnerships for Sustainable Development

Unfortunately, it takes more than a lone pioneer to get customers to rethink their green priorities. That's why we rely on the power of the collective, and cooperate with an international network of professional bodies and industry initiatives for a mutual, sustainable future. This bundled know-how from different branches of industry allows us to cultivate a far reaching understanding of our customers' issues, while presenting them with global solutions.
