RAW Paints has received the Stimulans Award from the partners of the Duin & Kruidberg Convention, along with Great Bubble Barrier.
During this convention, with the theme ‘innovate or cremate’ RAW Paints was allowed to talk about its company, innovation and mission:
Let innovation and cooperation lead: switch to a purpose driven rather than money driven economy, for the well-being of man, the planet and now the economy.
By working together with partners, who may still be competitors, we can’t make a difference.
The move towards this new economy has now become a more logical step, unfortunately because of the corona virus with nasty consequences for health and businesses.
The time is now!
United Nations Global Compact has officially admitted RAW Paints as a participant.
Guided by the ten universal principles and the 17 SDGs, RAW Paints is supported in corporate responsibility and follows the guidelines to turn sustainability commitments into action.

The Green Quest
As a regular part of the program, we get to know the latest addition to The Green Gallery. Raw Paints will be added to the Gallery this week. This company sells paint powder. Add water just before use, and the paint can be used. This not only saves a lot in the use of chemicals, but also means a much lower volume to transport. Together with 39 other companies, RAW Paints has a chance to win The green Quest Award.

More environmentally friendly paints with powder
Why carry buckets of paint when you can also buy paint in powder form. Much easier to transport, less left-over paint and therefore much more environmentally friendly. Raw Paints developed it. This video was created in collaboration with the Accenture Innovation Awards.
