Rising to the challenge: AkzoNobel publishes 2021 annual report

02 March 2022

AkzoNobel has published its digital Report 2021, which highlights the company’s resilience during a challenging year for the whole paints and coatings industry.

The dedicated Report 2021 website includes comprehensive coverage of the company’s financial results and key business developments. Sustainability is also integrated throughout, including an extensive section structured around People. Planet. Paint.

In his CEO statement, Thierry Vanlancker says that while 2021 was a real stress test, the company rose to the challenge: "Despite the massive headwinds, we were able to safeguard our profitability and stay on track for defending or strengthening our market positions – our Grow & Deliver strategy has remained on course.

"The reinvention of AkzoNobel as a focused paints and coatings company, which started in 2017, is clearly on track to make us the reference in our industry.”

Offering a wide range of interactive content and infographics, the online report opens with a user-friendly home page, while intuitive functionality makes it easy to access information. Visitors can also make use of various tools to compare key data and download tables, while several case studies – with related videos – also feature prominently.

Continues Vanlancker: "Although we were dealing with incoming supply chain disruption and inflation, demand for our paints and coatings remained strong and I’m very proud of how our teams demonstrated their new-found resilience.”
