At AkzoNobel, sustainability is business and business is sustainability. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

The importance of sustainability to the running of our business is firmly integrated into our company purpose and AkzoNobel’s strategy. As well as being a strategic focus area, it is one of the three core principles (safety, integrity and sustainability) that provide the foundation for our company values and the Code of Conduct.

AkzoNobel’s sustainability agenda incorporates environmental, social and economic aspects across the value chain.

AkzoNobel has adopted the Planet Possible sustainability strategy. It’s our commitment to doing more with less and creating more value from fewer resources. By working together with all our customers and partners, we aim to make life more liveable, healthy and inspiring.

Our societal impact is encapsulated by our Human Cities initiative, which is everything we do for and with society. Human Cities is our commitment to improving, energizing and regenerating urban communities across the world. It is an active expression of AkzoNobel’s purpose to create everyday essentials to make people’s lives more liveable and inspiring.

Sustainability enables AkzoNobel to enhance and grow our existing business, create new business opportunities, reduce operational costs and minimize risks.

AkzoNobel actively participates in cross-industry partnerships to further this agenda, namely the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and the Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition.
