Wed, June 06, 2012 - 12:00 AM
BERGER PAINTS is now using more eco-friendly processes and intends to produce more environmentally friendly products.
The company’s thrust in this area was highlighted by general manager Ritesh Doshi during a World Environment Day tree planting ceremony yesterday at Westbury Primary School.
He said the company had adopted the Going Green theme for the year and committed itself to having more eco-friendly brands.
Doshi said Berger had introduced systems at its plant to increase efficiency and improve its products, adjusting its processes to those recommended by the environmental management certification ISO 1400.
In addition, he said, Berger was looking at introducing new products and revamping existing products to have a “greener” more environment friendly line of products for use in homes.
He said that as the company celebrated its 45th anniversary, donating the trees was a way of giving back to the community.
Berger also donated trees to Lawrence T. Gay Primary School and promised to continue the exercise at other schools today.
The company would have donated four fruit trees to each of about seven schools over the two-day period.
Principal of Westbury Primary, Michael Alleyne, and principal of Lawrence T. Gay, Beverley Parris, expressed appreciation for the donations.
Both spoke of ongoing environmentally sensitive activities at their schools. (LK)
