Jaipur/India, October 26, 2017 – Beckers Group is the first coil coatings company to receive the GreenPro Certificate, a product certification given by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII-GBC), that recognizes Beckers’ Beckry®Therm paint systems as sustainable throughout their life cycle. The award ceremony took place at the annual Green Building Congress 2017, India’s flagship event on green building.
The certificate is valid for two years and can then be renewed; it aims to enable builders and architects to make an informed choice about sustainable products.

Beckry®Therm has an outstanding functional sustainability: When less solar energy is absorbed the building does not heat as fast. Subsequently less air conditioning is needed. With those characteristics, Beckry®Therm has a direct impact on the global warming. The Beckry®Therm app visualizes the effects the coating has: By selecting your building location, angle of the roof, building’s insulation and your choice of cladding color you can estimate the possible energy cost-saving when choosing Becky®Therm.
