AkzoNobel’s business principles are based on our values. Wherever we operate, we aim for the highest standards of performance and behavior in everything we do.
Each of our 58,000 people helps to make us the organization we are. But how do we make sure they get us to where we want to be?
Health & safety
Yes, we want to help our customers make their business a success. And yes, we want to provide competitive returns for our shareholders. But our number one priority is the health and safety of our people.
As a major international manufacturing company, we’re responsible for protecting and safeguarding the environment in which we operate. We don’t just utter reassuring words about the environment. We take positive steps to reduce the environmental impact of what we do.
Issues and dilemmas
In doing business around the world, we inevitably come across issues and dilemmas like child labor, climate change and economic sanctions. We can’t make these go away. But we can make sure we don’t contribute to the problem.
AkzoNobel has a strong track record in making the most of our energy. But we want to do more. So we’ll continue improving our energy efficiency and reducing the carbon-intensity of our production processes.
We take all of these things into consideration throughout our business. And ultimately, we’re committed to supplying our customers with the innovative, sustainable solutions which have become synonymous with AkzoNobel.
