The ecological orientation of the company has started since many years and continuous with the production of new products.

Within the effort for innovation and respect to the environment, we created in the design and production of the first Greek ecological paint ‘Petite’ which was awarded the first Eco-label from the European Union in April 1998.

In June 2001, The Deputy Minister of Environment, Energy & Climate Change awarded the European Union Eco-label to the product ‘Aqua-Lux’.

Also, the company is in close co-operation with the Ministry and participates actively in the conversations of the European Union about the re-examination of the ecological measures, based on which, the ecological trademark is granted.

All the above conform to the ecological criteria of the European Union (Decision 2009/544/ΕΚ) and have been awarded the eco label sign from ASAOS 

Specifically, products that receive ecological certification have the following features: The amount of white pigment is reduced while ensuring adequate coverage, the pigments are produced according to strict ecological criteria, the product releases less solvent, the product does not contain heavy metals or toxic substances.

The company, recognizing the need to continually improve its environmental performance based on the principles of sustainable development and compliance with laws and international standards, aims for a balanced economic development in harmony with nature.

Within this context of defined ecological concept within its general operations, Berling studied, planned and implemented from the beginning of 2005, the Environmental Management System according to standard ELON EN ISO 14000:2004 and ΕΜΑS Regulation of the European Union. These systems are applied in all departments of the company from management to production, sales and distribution of its products.
