Committed to Sustainability

AkzoNobel remains in the top three in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index which rates companies on a range of economic, environmental and social criteria.

  • Waste from overspray is reclaimed and recycled or reprocessed
  • The development of powder coatings that are manufactured using low temperature or ‘dry’ cured technologies which consume less energy
  • Powders based on Particle Management Technology that offer reduced film build and therefore require less raw materials
  • A decrease of hazardous waste by 75% in the last decade at our Melbourne manufacturing site.
  • No Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) nor any toxic heavy metals such as lead or chromium (VI).
