Sustainability is central to Axalta’s business. From environmental and social performance to commercial initiatives, and governance, being a good neighbor and an engaged business partner are fundamental to our growth and success.
Axalta's manufacturing sites and research and development centers on five continents are designed to minimize our impact on the environment. Many of our products and application technologies are developed to support not only our own sustainability goals, but also those of our customers by increasing productivity and reducing emissions, energy use, and waste. We engage with a variety of stakeholders including customers, suppliers, industry organizations, non-governmental organizations and others to listen, learn and find ways to continually improve our performance.
