Green paint runs through our veins

ADLER green

Paint runs through our veins: with this philosophy, ADLER has become Austria's leading manufacturer of varnishes, paints and wood preservatives. But there's also a great deal of green flowing through our veins, as environmental protection has always been a high priority at ADLER. ADLER stands for sustainable entrepreneurship with responsibility for future generations. Resources are conserved with environmentally friendly production methods, traceable supply chains and the processing of renewable raw materials. By working in an energy-efficient manner, ADLER makes an important contribution to climate protection. Emissions that cannot be avoided despite intensive efforts are offset by means of CO₂ compensation. This makes ADLER one of the first companies in its industry that has achieved 100 % climate-neutral production.

→ active contribution to climate protection
→ 100 % CO₂-neutral production

→ raw materials sourced mainly from Europe
→ high proportion of renewable raw materials
→promoting biodiversity
→low-emission products, especially water-based products
→ reduced pollutants and healthier living climate
→ high quality performance and product safety due to long durability, resistance etc.


For many years, ADLER has rightly been considered a pioneer in the field of environmentally friendly paint production. This pronounced environmental awareness forms the basis for a comprehensive sustainability philosophy that we have anchored as a core component of our corporate strategy today. Für unsere nachhaltigen Produkte sind vor allem die SDGs Nachhaltiger Konsum und Produktion, Maßnahmen zum Klimaschutz sowie Gesundheit und Wohlergehen wichtig.

The ADLER laboratory closely examines the green-Label products based on various criteria and evaluates them according to strict guidelines. The standards that ADLER applies to its own products are sometimes stricter than those of well-known eco-labels.

All products are objectively tested and certified according to three categories: Environment, Health & Safety and Service life. Only products that score positively in all these areas are awarded the green sustainability label.
