Our beating heart:
People. Planet. Paint.

AkzoNobel has a long and proud heritage. Throughout our history, we’ve made things happen. We’ve always evolved and expanded our horizons.

Some things, however, have always remained constant. Like being an employer of choice. A responsible global citizen. A pioneer. That’s our bedrock. The foundations of what we stand for. So we have a truly meaningful purpose, with People. Planet. Paint. as our beating heart.

We’re ideally placed to demonstrate our passion for bringing genuine benefits to society and the world we live in. How? By using our pioneering spirit and centuries of paints and coatings expertise to make a real impact. By delivering the sustainable and innovative solutions that our customers, communities – and the planet – are increasingly relying on.

So there’s a deeper, wider meaning to People. Planet. Paint. It’s not only about doing business sustainably. It touches everything we do. It’s our reason for being. It excites us. It challenges us. It’s about making a genuine and lasting difference so we can remain at the forefront of our industry.


We care passionately about people and building communities, with safety, integrity and sustainability at our core.


We challenge ourselves and our partners every day to be better global citizens and protect the future of our planet.


We keep pushing boundaries to develop paint solutions that make a world of difference.
