This is not short term, weak paint or cheap encapsulation.

In this blog, I'll explore how GEI, a 30 year, well-established and forward-thinking company is not only providing exceptional products but also contributing to the achievement of 7 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set forth by the United Nations and Global Community and how they are enhancing a sustainable future.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), often referred to as the Global Goals, are a set of seventeen interconnected objectives adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015.

They serve as a shared blueprint for addressing global challenges and creating a more sustainable and prosperous world for current and future generations.

GEI has always recognized the importance of aligning their products and practices with sustainable goals of the global environmental community.

One significant step they've taken was 30 years ago in the development of Green Coatings Encasement.

This sustainable coating solution not only offers superior, eco-friendly, long-term, protection but also contributes to several Sustainable Development Goals.

This is the complete list of the United Nations SDG (Sustainable Development Goals).

#1 No poverty
#2 Zero hunger
#3 Good health and well-being
#4 Quality education
#5 Gender equality
#6 Clean water and sanitation
#7 Affordable and clean energy
#8 Decent work and economic growth
#9 Industry, innovation and infrastructure
#10 Reduced inequalities
#11 Sustainable cities and communities
#12 Responsible consumption and production
#13 Climate action
#14 Life below water
#15 Life on land
#16 Peace, justice, and strong institutions
#17 Partnerships for the goals

Now this is the list of seven out of the 17 that GEI Green Coatings ENCASEMENT contributes to.

The first being:

Goal 3: Good Health and Well Being

Green coatings encasement makes a difference in alignment with UN SDG 3 - Good health and well-being.
GEI, green coatings encasement solutions are addressing critical issues like Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) and Building-Related Illness (BRI).

By encasing hazardous materials like asbestos and lead-based paint, they quickly help create safer indoor spaces, promoting good health and well-being for all.

Also, turning dark surfaces solar reflective you can quickly reduce the temperature of interior areas with passive cooling, minimizing the amount of energy to cool those areas while creating overall well-being especially for more susceptible parts of our populations like children and elderly.

This one strategy is more important in year-round, hot climates where sometime people don’t have access to electricity or mechanical cooling devices.

Goal 5: Gender Equality

Gender equality SDG 5, isn't just a fundamental human right, but a driving force for a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world.

The painting industry, puzzling to me as it is has been historically male-dominated, but the tide is turning.

In the United States alone, the number of female painters has increased by 1.9% in just one year and by a remarkable 3.9% over the past decade.

Revolutionary green coatings that are eco-friendly, non-toxic, biodegradable and extremely user friendly opening the doors for the employment and greater job opportunities for women in a rapidly expanding worldwide field of the application of these green coatings.

The overall green coatings market is quickly growing and there are more equal opportunity coating/painting jobs opening up worldwide for women than ever before.

Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy

Green Coatings Encasement focuses on energy efficiency, solar reflective surfaces, reducing the need for frequent maintenance and recoating.

This aligns with SDG 7, aiming to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all.

Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

By providing long-lasting (20-year renewable cycle), eco-friendly, solar reflective coatings, which strengthens surfaces, restores roofing and also safely encases solid hazardous materials like asbestos and lead based paint, GEI supports SDG 11, which promotes the creation of sustainable, resilient, and inclusive cities and communities.

Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production

Green Coatings Encasement is manufactured with a commitment to responsible consumption and production.

It minimizes waste, uses environmentally friendly, non-toxic, biodegradable materials, restores worn out surfaces and helps achieve SDG 12 by promoting sustainable practices such as restoration vs removal & replacement.

Goal 13: Climate Action

The reduced need for recoating due to the longevity of Green Coatings Encasement, restoring worn-out old surfaces, creating solar reflective surfaces and helping prevent the generation, transportation and storage of unwanted, harmful waste directly contributes to SDG 13, which emphasizes urgent action to combat climate change.

Goal 15: Life on Land

By defending structures for the long term and protecting from corrosion and environmental damage, helping prevent the release of debris, GEI Green Coatings Encasement supports SDG 15, which seeks to protect, restore, and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems.

To Sum it up GEI is not just a leader in the coatings industry; they're actively aligning their mission with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Through long term Green Coatings Encasement, they are making significant strides towards achieving these global objectives.
As consumers and businesses increasingly focus on sustainability, GEI is setting an example for others to follow in the journey toward a more sustainable and prosperous future.

When you're seeking green coatings that deliver on superior quality and sustainability, look no further than GEI and their innovative, premium Green Coatings Encasement – not weak paint.

In the next blogs, I’ll dive deeper into each of the 7 SDG’s and explain further how Green Coatings ENCASEMENT works to support those individual goals.

Sustainability is important to study even if you aren't an environmental science major.” Stefano Martinetto
