    Is it Still Paint?

    Technology isn’t something most people think of when it comes to paint, but at Benjamin Moore we’re constantly working to develop products that solve problems and make you rethink what paint can do. Since Benjamin Moore paint goes so far beyond your expectations of paint, it kind of makes you wonder...is it still paint?

Green Products - Almaden Paint & Wallpaper

The coatings industry is filled with third-party organizations like U.S. Green Building Council (LEED), Master Painter’s Institute (MPI), Greenguard, California’s Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and Green Seal that are trying to define what green means for coatings as well as other consumer products.

Some, like Green Seal and MPI, focus on what is in the paint while others, like CHPS and Green Guard are more focused on what is emitted from paint. While we applaud the goals of these organizations, (Benjamin Moore has products certified by them), the net result of so many competing standards is a confused and sometimes frustrated consumer.

Benjamin Moore has concluded that we need to make it easier for our customers DIYers, painters, designers and specifiers) to make sense of all these standards while also bringing clarity to our perspective on green. To that end, we are introducing our Green Promise designation that will be used to designate coatings that offer both lower total volatile compounds and a premium level of paint performance.  Our Green Promise designation is Benjamin Moore’s assurance that its environmentally friendly coatings meet and exceed the strictest industry standards, while also delivering the performance you expect from Benjamin Moore.


The following product currently carries the Green Promise Designation:
