The world of AkzoNobel
AkzoNobel is the world's largest coatings and specialty chemicals company, with leading market positions and brands in countries around the world.
We operate in a number of important market segments ranging from buildings and infrastructure to transport, industrial and consumer goods. We're also the sector leader in sustainability and are number one in the renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Index. In practical terms, that means our sustainable solutions are in your lives, and those of your friends and family, every day: the differentiator that makes it possible for you to do what you need to do.
Without our products and technologies, you would find it difficult to go on a journey, sit in a room, or even enjoy a meal. If you want to create an inspiring environment, our huge range of indoor and outdoor paints can match every mood. If you want to look good, we make vital ingredients for face creams, hair products, perfumes and deodorants. Even in extreme situations, like being in a building that catches fire, our protective coatings can help structures stay intact for longer, giving you more time to escape.
