At Valspar, we believe in protecting the environment, safeguarding human health, and giving back to the community. Our goal is to improve continuously in each of these areas and to offer innovative green products for a variety of applications.

As building codes become more stringent and green rating systems grow in popularity, Valspar has developed products that meet ENERGY STAR and LEED rating system criteria. Solar reflective coatings for cool roofs reduce a building’s energy consumption and mitigate the heat island effect. Cool roofs reflect back the heat from the sun, reducing the cooling load of a building. We produce a full line of high-performance chrome-free primers that are suitable for a variety of applications.

At Valspar, our commitment to sustainability starts with our employees. We are dedicated to creating a safe workplace. Our systems are designed to mitigate risk, promoting employee wellbeing.

Through Habitat for Humanity, Valspar has donated paint and organized volunteers to restore home exteriors. Valspar pledged $1 million to the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering over five years to purchase high-quality equipment for a new undergraduate laboratory.

Innovation with a green focus is at the heart of our commitment to serve our customers. Valspar continues to develop new solutions to new challenges. Valspar is dedicated to creating durable coatings that conserve energy, protect the environment and safeguard human health. 

Creating innovative green coatings is a focus at Valspar. Learn more about our coatings with biorenewables and recycled materials.
