AkzoNobel Joins 'Together for Sustainability' Initiative

By Chemical Processing staff

In an effort to reinforce its commitment to sustainability, AkzoNobel joined the Together for Sustainability (TfS) initiative. Founded in 2011, the purpose of TfS is to develop and implement a global audit program 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.

The TfS initiative involves independent experts carrying out assessments and audits of suppliers, avoiding the need for each of the members to conduct their own. Results and scorecard ratings are then shared within TfS on a web-based collaborative platform.
