For many years, our different social programs have been showing how AkzoNobel cares all over the world. Helping people and their communities, building employee pride and using our products and expertise to improve people’s lives – besides simply being the right thing to do, it’s what we call “delivering shared value” for everyone.

We have two main social programs: our Community Program and Let’s Colour; Together, they show AkzoNobel Cares. We invite you to follow all our activities on our social channels using the hashtag #AkzoNobelCares

Creating a brighter future with our Community Program

Launched in 2005, the Community Program has already made the future brighter for many around the world. Focused on people in need, including children, refugees, people with disabilities or the elderly, these activities promote education; improve wellbeing, healthcare and sanitation; and reduce poverty. It's all about making a positive and sustainable impact. 

As an employee-driven initiative, our employees find people in their own communities who need our help, and organize to provide it. Projects use the hands-on support of our local employees, our own products and the vast expertise we can offer as a paints and coatings company.

Let’s Colour community transformation programs

Let’s Colour (#LetsColour), from Dulux and the Flourish brands, adds color to people’s lives and transforms communities through paint. Inspired by our desire to help children, families and their communities, Let’s Colour creates learning opportunities and environments that enable them to grow and flourish.

We work together with SOS Children’s Villages to tackle the global issue of youth unemployment through education and renovation. Young people receive professional training through our trainer’s academies, and use what they’ve learned to benefit the SOS Children’s Villages community.

Other Let’s Colour projects transform local communities with the power of paint! Read more on our Let's Colour projects.  

We invite you to follow #AkzoNobelCares on social media channels to see what we’re up to globally.
