The BCF Coatings Care environmental program demonstrates that the U.K. coatings industry cares about the health and welfare of employees, the safe operation of processes, and shows determination to contribute actively to a sustainable environment. BCF has been tracking the manufacturing performance of BCF members for more than 20 years and, over that time, has recorded significant improvements in production efficiency and environmental performance over many of the 45 health, safety, and environment key performance indicators.

The latest Coatings Care figures show record low levels of energy used in production, as well as a significant decrease in production waste. 71% of production waste is now recycled, compared with just 17% in 1996. Accident rates are also at a record low and well below the latest U.K Labor Force Survey, with zero RIDDOR reported dangerous occurrences or fires at BCF member sites in 2020.
