Towards a better, cleaner and greener Mauritius
The past decade has witnessed a growing awareness toward adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle. Mauvilac values this movement because we believe that environmental sustainability is key to revitalising economies.
For us, paint manufacturing and sustainability can be coterminous with each other. Abiding by ISO 45001. We have enforced strict security measures to curb any risks of accidents on site.
In accordance to Mauvilac’s wastewater management strategy, we treat our wastewater with great accuracy. We analyse our operations’ water footprint to ensure we are not polluting the environment.
With our air extractor, we closely monitor the primary air pollutant emanating from our manufacturing site.
The company also strives to minimise its wastes. We are currently replacing polythene plastic bags with reusable beanbags. In terms of paint products, almost 88% of our paints are water-based. In addition, in all our departments, we sort and recycle our plastic and paper wastes.

corporate social responsibility
Caring For The Local Community
At Mauvilac, we share a deep concern to make our Mauritian society a better place to live in. CSR activities form an integral part in our corporate philosophy, as it is our way to help build a stronger community and work towards sustainability, social inclusion and equality.
Adding Colours To Your Dreams
Mauvilac has been working in close collaboration with NGOs, which have the aims to alleviate poverty, promote social justice and solidarity in Mauritius, and help the underprivileged gain access to education and health care.
By funding these NGO, Mauvilac participates in empowering the marginalised and the deprived people with tools which will allow them to lead a rewarding life with the dignity and respect they deserve.
Healing With Colours: Children’s Cancer Ward of Victoria Hospital
Artists and interior designers have long believed that color can dramatically affect moods, feelings, and emotions. As Pablo Picasso says “Colors follow the changes of emotions.” In this view, Mauvilac has decided to use colours and visual art as a chromotherapy in the Children’s Cancer Ward at Victoria Hospital.
Mauvilac had the objective to transform the cold and austere atmosphere of the hospital into a happy, distracting and engaging space for the young patients. Our team has painted the walls in warm colours with quirky and playful characters to promote positive and healing effects. Colouring pages and markers have also been made available to them to enhance the process of colour therapy.
We share a deep concern for the health and wellbeing of our Mauritian children, and we hope that this initiative will cheer them up and reanimate their desire to live.
