Solera and Axalta agree sustainability partnership 


Solera has announced a new strategic partnership to better support the repair industry measure and reduce CO2 emissions. 

The partnership will see Axalta’s Fast Cure Low Energy (FCLE) refinish paint systems integrated into Solera’s Sustainable Estimatics platform, providing emissions analysis for individual repairs, as well as emissions contrasts between different methods, paint application processes and drying conditions.  

This means Axalta becomes the first paint manufacturer to provide data to calculate emissions of specific processes and products during the repair as opposed to industry averages.  

Troy Weaver, President of Global Refinish at Axalta, said, “By accurately calculating CO2 emissions per repair, our customers can make data-driven decisions to help lower their carbon footprint while also benefiting their bottom line.”  

Arnaud Agostini, International Managing Director at Solera, added, “The ability to measure carbon emissions is becoming more prevalent across the world, with an ever-increasing number of governments looking to advocate its measurement to understand the environmental impact of vehicle repair on the planet.  

“The preparation, production and use of paint is an important part of every bodyshop process and a hugely important factor for insurers who will need to accurately measure and report the CO2 impact of every element of every repair.  

“By partnering with Axalta, Solera not only ensures accurate measurement of the CO2 emissions emitted as the result of a repair, but we ensure that our data remains fit for purpose over the long term, bringing the most accurate CO2 emissions connected to vehicle repair.”
