The VVVF concentrates on four themes: compliance, good employer practice, innovation and sustainable entrepreneurship. Each theme is managed by a theme group that includes representatives from member companies. The theme group draws up an annual activity program, submits it to the board for adoption and then supervises the implementation by the VVVF office. The chairmanship of a theme group basically coincides with the membership of the VVVF board.
The member companies are active in various market segments. The VVVF therefore has clustered their companies in sector groups where specific topics are dealt with: construction, (printing) ink, car repairs, marine, industry, protective coatings, fire-resistant coatings, roads / road marking. Sections are represented in the board.
Paint and printing ink are always part of a composite end product, whether it is a car, a building or a magazine. Cooperation in the value chain therefore is an important aspect within the VVVF. The VVVF frequently meets its stakeholders in the value chain.
