Why AkzoNobel supports Water Revolution

“When AkzoNobel came in touch with Water Revolution Foundation the word ‘sustainability’ came to the table within minutes. I personally remember an intense conversation during the Monaco Yacht Show 2019 that right away built up interest for a constructive partnership.⁠

Being a leading producer of coatings for the yachting industry with well-known brands such as International and Awlgrip, we feel a high degree of responsibility towards the superyacht and boating market. We also bring rich experiences in other industries like automotive and aerospace, as well as technologies ranging from sustainable coatings like powder to high-end automated application processes. Finally, the scope of sustainability is not only the paint in the can but it also includes what the paint can do for processes and systems both in new build and refit yards.⁠

We are therefore extremely enthusiastic to become partner of Water Revolution. This is a great platform to have meaningful discussions with a common objective; making positive progress on sustainability in this industry.⁠

The future is exciting and we are proud of being part of it.”
