“We can take great pride in once again being placed first in such a prestigious and influential ranking,” said AkzoNobel CEO Ton Büchner.

“Sustainability is fundamental to our strategy of connecting value creation to resource efficiency and maintaining our DJSI leadership status underscores our belief that sustainability is business and business is sustainability. Everyone involved deserves huge credit for what we have achieved in being ranked first for the last two years,” he added.
