Akzo Nobel is a leading global paints and coatings company and major producer of specialty chemicals. We create everyday essentials to make people’s lives more liveable and inspiring.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at AkzoNobel. It’s vital for the future success of our company, our society and our planet. That’s why we’ve adopted a Planet Possible sustainability strategy. It’s our commitment to doing more with less and creating more value from fewer resources. Bio-based raw materials make an important contribution to our sustainability strategy. A considerable proportion of our environmental footprint results from the raw materials we buy, with most of the bio-based materials exhibiting lower footprints.
While many of our raw materials are already bio-based, several new materials are being developed and are starting to reach the market. In order to lead the deployment of these materials in our markets, we have been setting up and developing partnerships across our supply chain. By working together with all our customers and partners, we aim to make life more liveable, healthy and inspiring.
