The strategic agenda today

Our new strategic agenda is firmly focused on delivering growth. This will be supported by a renewed emphasis on functional excellence and will continue to be balanced by a disciplined approach to cash management. These agenda items will be supported by continued focus on building and leveraging our Talent Factory, living the AkzoNobel values and embedding safety and sustainability in everything we do.
