The Paintback Waste Management Scheme

We’re a proud supporter and founding member of Paintback, a world-first, industry-led national paint collection, disposal and recycling scheme, which aims to reduce the large volumes of waste paint and packaging going into landfill. The scheme has over 160 drop off locations across Australia.

GECA Certification

Our GECA licences (Paints & Coatings (PCv2.3-2012)) cover a range of preparation and topcoat products, namely interior walls, ceilings and trims. These are recognised by ISCA and contribute to IS ratings. They also contribute to Green Star, WELL, NABERS and LEED. GECA’s ecolabel on your products and services provides an independent tick to specifiers and purchasers that your products and services are better for the environment and reduce their impact on human health.

We’re a member of Green Building Council Australia (GBCA), an authority on sustainable buildings and communities. We have a range of Wattyl products that contribute to Green Star credit points. GBCA Green Star rating tools help reduce the environmental impact of buildings.


Our laboratories are NATA™ accredited for the testing of surface coatings. NATA accredits organisations to perform testing and inspection activities for their products and services. This gives consumers the assurance they need to make safe, healthy and reliable choices.
