Vella Group partners AkzoNobel in sustainability drive

The Vella Group has become the first UK business to be named an official partner of AkzoNobel’s Sustainable Repair Network.

It has achieved level 1 of the three-level certification process, which demonstrates its commitment to reducing its carbon footprint.

As part of this commitment, the Vella Group is dedicated to measuring and reducing energy consumption and emissions though a series of improvements, including changing equipment, processes and products.

It has already carried out a full Bodyshop Energy Scan, mapping all energy consumption to identify where improvements can be made, and completed a Sustainable Repair Audit which focused on the four key areas of repair, recycle, re-use, and reduce.

Marc Holding, Managing Director of The Vella Group, said, “As a business we are forward thinking when it comes to sustainability and go beyond the standard or legal requirements placed upon us. We are looking forward to working closely with AkzoNobel in continuing to develop our sustainability targets which will include identifying additional opportunities to further enhance our operational processes and procedures. This will lead to significant improvements in managing our carbon emissions and enhancing efficiency.”

Paul James, Strategic Accounts Manager Vehicle Refinishes UK & Ireland, AkzoNobel, added, “Together we will collectively look at all the steps of their repair process and their entire bodyshop operation to see where emissions are being created and how we can help to reduce them. We will give them the tools, knowledge, support, and experience to make a tangible long-term difference to their business.”
