At AkzoNobel, we’re focused on ensuring that the pioneering paints and coatings we supply today can help safeguard our world far beyond tomorrow. We innovate with and for customers and play a progressive and collaborative role in energizing entire industries to advance towards a more sustainable future.
By using the power of paints and coatings – to harness energy, reflect heat, protect surfaces for longer, purify indoor air and reduce drag in ships, for example – we can help customers decrease energy consumption, increase efficiency, lower waste and improve safety, while also being more cost-effective. It’s about finding inventive ways to collectively make a positive contribution to our ever-changing world.
This will be vital if we’re to realize our science-based target of halving our carbon emissions by 2030. It’s one of several ambitions we have for 2030, which also include reaching 50% of revenue from sustainable solutions; achieving 100% circular use of materials; and empowering more than 100,000 people in local communities with new skills.
We put particular emphasis and investment into our sustainable solutions, so our game-changing portfolio of innovative products and technologies is always expanding. This is guided by five key drivers: lower energy and carbon; less waste; reduce, reuse and renew; health and well-being; longer lasting.
