At AkzoNobel innovation starts with understanding what our customers need. That means understanding and anticipating their changing needs and expectations.

You will see AkzoNobel innovation all around you. Our science is protecting the world’s most iconic buildings and landmarks. It is helping to keep buildings cool to conserve energy and saving shipping companies both money and carbon emissions by helping their vessels glide through the sea.

Of course sustainability is integral to everything we do at AkzoNobel. That is why most of our innovation work is driven by sustainability as part of our Planet Possible™ approach to deliver more value, from fewer resources. All this means recruiting the very best people and working with others to deliver breakthrough innovative solutions.
