A group of businesses and organizations is taking on several projects, including improving operational efficiencies and advancing sustainable materials, to lower emissions in the paint and coatings industry.

The effort is part of AkzoNobel’s Paint the Future Collaborative Sustainability Challenge, and the group has formed five teams that will take on five projects. They include helping the coatings industry identify ways to measure sustainability and establishing a framework outlining the benefits of sustainable raw materials.

Dutch paint company AkzoNobel formed the sustainability challenge in May 2022 with 28 partners including suppliers, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions. The projects are the result of the collaboration’s first phase of work toward making sustainability improvements in the paint and coatings industry.

The partnership includes businesses and organizations that AkzoNobel says wouldn’t usually work together, which will increase the opportunity to make sustainable impacts across operations in the industry.
