With their Responsible Care programme, the European chemicals industry has set itself the goal of making further progress in the areas of environment, safety and health – independent of the statutory regulations. Every year, a selection of outstanding projects and initiatives are chosen for the European Responsible Care Awards. Among the prizewinners for the year 2022: ADLER, Responsible Care partner for around 30 years. The development of their eco-friendly "green" range and the implementation of the principles of the circular economy in the development of their paints and varnishes gained the recognition of the jury, who chose the company for the "Resource Efficiency" category of the European Responsible Care Awards.
ADLER – paint runs through our veins
With 670 employees, ADLER is Austria's leading manufacturer of varnishes, paints and wood preservatives. Founded in 1934 by Johann Berghofer, this family business is now managed by a member of the third generation, Andrea Berghofer. Every year, 22,000 tonnes of paint leave the Schwaz plant and are delivered to customers in more than 30 countries worldwide. ADLER has sales subsidiaries in Germany, Italy, Poland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia; their sole production site is the ADLER-Werk Lackfabrik in Schwaz, Tyrol (Austria). ADLER was one of the first companies in its sector to be 100% climate-neutral (since 2018). The company has been able to reduce its carbon footprint to a minimum through a wide range of measures. ADLER offsets any unavoidable residual emissions through the purchase of recognised climate protection certificates, thereby helping to finance new climate protection projects.
