The company has been among the global leaders in sustainability for more than a decade, and this new goal confirms AkzoNobel’s belief that sustainability is business and business is sustainability.

AkzoNobel’s share of renewable energy currently stands at 40%, with almost half the company’s sites around the world having improved their energy footprint in 2016.

The intention now is to increase the momentum which has already been created by the company’s Planet Possible sustainability agenda.

This will include charting a path towards zero carbon emissions and 100% use of renewable energy, and continuing to offer innovative products and services that enable customers to reduce their energy use and carbon impact.

Achieving the 2050 ambition will position the company at the forefront of industry efforts to transform the use of resources throughout the value chain.
