After setting the compliance level foundations in 2005/6, the task for AkzoNobel was to integrate sustainability tools and processes throughout the functions in the value chain. We are focusing the 2008 report on two areas: sourcing and research, development and innovation. Other projects include:
- A market research workshop to review sustainability metrics, used later in the new AkzoNobel dashboard
- Supply chain optimization studies to review production locations and transport requirements for raw materials and products
- Many examples of eco-efficiency being used to enhance the marketing offer to customers (see eco-premium case studies: , ).
