Compliance and integrity management
Integrity is one of AkzoNobel’s core principles. We are committed to conducting our business in a lawful, fair and honest way and expect the same from our business partners. We aim for the highest standards suitable for our business and support this with a robust compliance framework. In 2016, we took several initiatives to bring our compliance framework to the next level, including the development of our human rights and business partner compliance programs, the establishment of a dedicated compliance manager organization and the strengthening of our export control and privacy frameworks.
