Environmental Stewardship

Sherwin-Williams focuses on reducing environmental impact in areas such as greenhouse gas emissions, electricity consumption, and waste reduction. From the plants where our products are manufactured to the point of purchase, Sherwin-Williams invests in sustainability initiatives guided by the needs of our communities and customers to grow our business with care.

Our Paint

Sherwin-Williams invested in enhancing overall consumer confidence and well-being with GREENGUARD Certification, the notation used to help consumers identify coatings with low chemical emissions. To-date we have more than 90 products that meet this environmental standard.

S-W Cares

S-W Cares is a standardized platform to communicate approach and expectations — and a roadmap for achieving EHS excellence across the company. It provides a leadership governance structure, a common language, and tools and measures for continuously improving efforts to ensure safe workplaces, protect the environment, and meet or exceed regulatory requirements.

Color a Brighter Tomorrow

In celebration of our milestone 150th anniversary, the Directors of the Sherwin-Williams Foundation established a pool of funds to distribute to deserving nonprofits nominated by our local teams.

National Painting Week

Every year during National Painting Week, Sherwin-Williams employees dedicate their time, effort and our products to upgrade nonprofits, churches, schools and other pillars of communities.
