In the wake of the recent release of its 2014-2015 Sustainability Report and the launch of its Sustainable Star customer awards program, Axalta Coating Systems announced its partnership with Stroud Water Research Center.

Stroud’s mission is to advance the knowledge and stewardship of freshwater systems through global research, environmental education and watershed restoration. The partnership unites the two organizations that have a similar philosophy and support of sustainable initiatives. Axalta’s waterborne and low volatile organic compound (VOC) liquid coatings and powder coatings that are virtually VOC-free and have no targeted hazardous air pollutants provide environmentally-responsible product options for customers. In addition, Axalta’s products are designed not only to beautify, but also to help provide protection to a multitude of materials including automobiles, heavy-duty trucks, playground equipment, oil and gas pipelines, and more. Axalta “is proud to have developed technologies and processes to lessen its own environmental footprint and that of its customers.”

“As a global institution dedicated to fresh water, Stroud is thrilled to have a partner like Axalta that is dedicated in its global efforts to sustainability of the environment,” said Bern Sweeney, Ph.D. – Stroud Water Research Center director and senior scientist. “Together, we look forward to raising awareness and expanding our outreach.”

Mike Carr, Axalta president – North America, added, “Sustainability is central to virtually everything we do as a coatings company. We are excited about our partnership with Stroud Water Research Center. Responsible organizations strive to minimize their impact on the environment. We believe Stroud is leading the way in freshwater research and Axalta is leading by example. I am confident that we will each continue to advance in our respective research areas and continue to enlighten others.”

Axalta and Stroud will present a collaborative education program that consists of the Science Seminar Series: Delaware River Watershed Initiative on Oct. 19th at the Union League in Philadelphia; a joint educational program for students that includes a hands-on component that highlights science and technology; and an upcoming lecture to take place during The Water’s Edge Gala on Nov. 3, 2016, at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pa.
