Ethical animal testing

AkzoNobel does not carry out animal research on finished products such as coatings, paints, or chemical mixtures, except in those exceptional cases where it is required by government regulations.

When animal testing is needed, AkzoNobel fully supports and applies the principles of the 3Rs: to Replace, Reduce and Refine animal testing.
AkzoNobel will continue with its strategy of minimizing animal testing by supporting the development of non-animal research or animal reduction research protocols. Moreover, we will also continue the dialog with institutes and regulatory bodies to minimize the need for animal testing.
