AkzoNobel joins Together for Sustainability (TfS)

22 January 2014

AkzoNobel has underlined its commitment to driving improvements throughout its global supply chains by signing up to the Together for Sustainability (TfS) initiative. Founded in 2011, the purpose of TfS is to develop and implement a global audit programme to assess and improve sustainability practices within the supply chains of the chemical industry.

The company has joined forces with the six existing members – BASF, Bayer, Evonik Industries, Henkel, Lanxess and Solvay – with the aim of building on established principles such as the United Nations Global Compact and the Responsible Care Global Charter.

"We already carry out extensive sustainability assessments in our own supply chains,” explained Ton Geurts, AkzoNobel’s Chief Procurement Officer. "But by integrating TfS into our existing strategy we will enhance our current processes and further improve the quality of our supply chains for the benefit of our customers.”
