Valley Box Company incorporates sustainable business practices into our operations by using Dunn & Edwards paints, considered one of the most environmentally-friendly paint manufacturers and an industry leader in eco-efficient principles. Learn more about their Greener by Design philosophy.
For example, throughout D&E operations the company focuses on initiatives such as:
- Energy efficiency
- Waste minimization
- Emissions reduction
- Health and safety protection.
Dunn-Edwards eco-efficient principles:
- 1984- D&E removes EG (a hazardous air pollutant and toxic air contaminant) from its paint formulas, and remains the only major manufacturer to have done so.
- 1970s- D&E reformulates all water-based paints to eliminate the use of biocides containing mercury — long before the U.S. EPA imposed a limited ban in 1990.
- 1980s- D&E replaces ethylene glycol (a toxic solvent) with safer, non-toxic, FDA-approved propylene glycol.
