Cromology the art of professional painting


Three Minutes to Understand

Sponsorship Initiatives

In all of its geographies, Cromology implements local actions designed to promote education and culture, to support associations, and to favour a social and solidarity economy.

In Morocco, Arcol runs a programme to renovate rural schools through skills volunteering and paint donations.

Colorín in Argentina works with the non-profit association TECHO which helps needy families in South America through its programme to construct wooden housing.

In France, Tollens is a partner of the Imagine Institute, Europe’s largest Research Centre for Genetic Diseases, and donated half of the 13,000 litres of paint required to decorate the new building opened by the Institute in 2013.


Cromology supports the Imagine Institute, Europe’s largest Research Centre for Genetic Diseases (Paris).

Since 2009, Zolpan has offered nearly 30 sustainable development grants for solidarity projects, which Zolpan employees volunteer for in their own time. The beneficiary associations provide services to needy communities, protect cultural heritage or promote sport.

Elsewhere, many Group companies have established partnerships in the worlds of art, culture and the environment: Colorín in Argentina (Glaciarium, Museo de Hielo), Tintas Robbialac in Portugal (Museu Coleção Berardo), Tollens in France (Musée d’Orsay, Musée de l’Orangerie, Musée de la Piscine de Roubaix) and Zolpan in France (‘Mur des Canuts’ in Lyon, Europe’s largest outdoor trompe l’oeil fresco).


Tintas Robbialac is partner with Museu Coleção Berardo, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Lisbon).
