About us

On the Side of the Environment.
On the Side of Humanity.

We Value Values Since 1984.
We can be market leaders, become number one, increase profits, but if we did nothing to protect the environment, we would contribute to its degradation, we would still be losers. This belief motivates every choice we make. That's why, since 1984, we never stopped the continuous search for solutions, to produce exclusively eco-friendly paints and bring beauty and well-being to humanity while protecting the planet. And, proudly, it will not stop.

Oikos in numbers

Ecology is the foundation of Oikos, and this connection is seen even in the etymology of the word ecology: it derives from the Greek oikos (οἶκος), which means home or environment, and logos, which means discourse or study. It is the scientific analysis of interactions between organisms and their environment. The term 'ecology' was coined in 1866 by the German biologist Ernst Haeckel.


Claudio Balestri, one of the leading entrepreneurs in the chemical sector in Italy, has tied his professional path to sustainability. The natural continuation of this personal mission led to the creation of Fondazione OASI, where OASI not only means “nature reserve” but is also an acronym for Organization for the Environment, Sustainability, and Social Innovation. This 25-hectare area overlooking the sea between Gabicce and Pesaro is the natural setting for events that promote values of sustainability, harmony with nature, peace, and art. Find out more.

The interiors we live in are mainly covered by paint, and if it contains toxic substances, we breathe them in. These substances are also emitted into the environment from exterior walls, creating further pollution. This is harmful to us and to the ecosystem. That's why, since 1984, we have chosen to produce only ecological paints without harmful components using sustainable production processes, reusing and giving new life to production and processing waste.

Ecological paint for people's well-being

In our reports, we do not only include numbers; we also calculate the satisfied handshakes of our customers, the associates who have appreciated us, the pride of our employees, and the satisfaction and gratitude for considering the well-being of those who use our ecological paint.


The UN prioritizes people's well-being. Oikos, too, has been producing only ecological paints since 1984 for the well-being of those who use them, those who apply them, and those who live in these environments. Oikos' commitment to humanity is demonstrated through humanitarian projects in various parts of the world, as well as by protecting and enhancing the role of employees and collaborators, creating, for example, training schools that promote the potential and growth of each professional. Specifically, Oikos supports Goal 3 (ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages) and Goal 17 (strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development) as outlined by the UN.
