The Terra Carta Seal is a major new award which recognizes global companies that are driving innovation and demonstrating their commitment to – and momentum towards – the creation of genuinely sustainable markets. It’s part of the Terra Carta, a recovery plan for nature, people and planet which was introduced early this year through HRH The Prince of Wales’ Sustainable Markets Initiative.
As the only paints and coatings manufacturer to receive the prestigious honor, AkzoNobel is among an elite group of companies who have been acknowledged for holding a leadership position within their industry, and who have credible transition roadmaps underpinned by globally recognized, scientific metrics for achieving net zero by 2050 or earlier
AkzoNobel’s sustainability ambitions highlight the extent of what the company is aiming to achieve with regard to transitioning to a more sustainable future. As well as aiming to cut carbon emissions by 50% by 2030, the company is also targeting 100% renewable electricity and zero non-reusable waste, also by 2030. In addition, AkzoNobel recently became the first paints and coatings company to have science-based sustainability targets officially validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
