CSC 2022 aftermovie
How do you sum up our Collaborative Sustainability Challenge hosted by AkzoNobel? With an after-movie! It’s a whirlwind look back at a hugely successful 24 hours, when 29 partners from across the value chain worked together to hack carbon reduction challenges in the paints and coatings industry.
Increase the efficiency of material usage and reduce the energy required for applying and curing paints and coatings
Reduce the amount of solvents emitted throughout our entire value chain
Increase the use of circular solutions in paints and coatings, both upstream and downstream
Why is collaboration so important to tackle climate change?
Defining a more sustainable future
It’s become very clear that there’s no time to waste if the world is to limit global warming. At AkzoNobel, we’ve set challenging ambitions for our own operations and our entire value chain to reduce our carbon footprint. We can’t achieve this alone, and therefore, we have selected value chain partners to develop a new collaborative way forward.
