Innovation drives change and is a critical-to-life activity for any company - and of course it is more than just the outcome of great science-led research. It’s about being in tune with societal, market and customer needs – and being able to come up with timely solutions to meet those needs.
That’s the AkzoNobel approach. For us, innovation begins with great insight into our customers’ needs. We’re challenge-led, and we seek sustainable solutions by doing great science, undertaken by great people and in partnerships with others, where it makes sense to do so.
On these pages you’ll find articles on how we are organized to create the bigger, bolder innovations that will spur the company’s growth and our strategy to achieve them.
You’ll also find an overview of our core areas of expertise in science & technology that underpin and drive the development of innovative products and processes; and you will find examples of our innovations in writing and in our company video.
We hope that these pages give you an insight into the thrust of our approach to innovation – and our passion for it.
