ICI Paints is an international organisation that specializes in paint and packaging coatings for food and beverage cans. As of 2009, the company is a part of Akzo Nobel, the biggest global coatings manufacturer in the world and a major supplier of specialty chemicals.

In 2005, an innovative collaboration between ICI Paints and UK-based NGO Forum for the Future led to the creation of a user-friendly life cycle assessment tool that can be used early in the product design process to capture 80 per cent of a product’s potential sustainability impacts. The results are presented in a visual format, giving decision makers a comprehensive, quantitative overview of impacts across a products life cycle: from extraction and processing of materials through to their disposal.
