More value with fewer resources
Our planet has limited resources. Therefore, our aim is to achieve more with less and to protect natural resources. To meet this goal, we have aligned all our thinking and trading with principles of sustainability. Health, safety and environmental protection are the decisive factors in this.
We are therefore continually expanding our share of sustainable productions and solutions, whilst at the same time increasingly ensuring that our production processes protect resources. In this way, we want to turn challenges into opportunities. This is the only way to ensure the long-term success of our company. An approach that even reflects our sustainability strategy in its name: “Planet Possible”.
The AkzoNobel group has taken first place for the fourth year running on the influential Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI). In the list of rankings published in 2015, we are in first place ahead of more than 350 companies in the materials industry group.
