Coatings Royalty: AkzoNobel awarded Terra Carta Seal at COP26 summit

Glasgow, United Kingdom — AkzoNobel received the royal treatment on Thursday as Prince Charles bestowed the automotive paint company with a Terra Carta Seal, at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, U.K.

The Prince of Wales said, “The Terra Carta Seal recognizes those organizations which have made a serious commitment to a future that is much more sustainable and puts nature, people and the planet at the heart of the economy. We all need to make changes if we are to preserve the planet for our children and grandchildren and these businesses have pledged to make it easier for us all to do so.”

As the only paints and coatings manufacturer to receive the inaugural award, AkzoNobel has been officially elevated as a global leader in climate sustainability for the automotive industry.

AkzoNobel CEO, Thierry Vanlancker, was in Glasgow to accept the award: “Having our efforts recognized by the award of the Terra Carta Seal is a source of great pride for everyone in our company. It’s a clear endorsement of all the work we’re doing across AkzoNobel and everything we’ve achieved so far. It also confirms the vital role that paints and coatings can play when you combine the precious and irreplaceable power of nature with the transformative power of paint—which lies at the heart of what we do for people and the environment.”

The company has committed to cutting carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2030 and is also targeting 100 percent renewable electricity and zero non-reusable waste, also by 2030.
