Innovation is considered vital for organic growth and sustainability at AkzoNobel, and our strategic ambition is to deliver world-leading innovation and products. As such, we are exploring the possible future use of GMOs to produce current and new raw materials by fermentation or other similar bio catalytic processes.
It is our opinion that the use of raw materials derived from GMO feedstock is acceptable both ethically and scientifically and does not impact the safety of our products. However, we will fulfill all requirements relating to the use of GMO derived materials whenever required, including labeling products containing raw materials which could be derived from crops which have been genetically modified if requested by our customers or required by law.
