Jolanda Poots-Bijl has announced that she will step down as a member of AkzoNobel’s Supervisory Board as of January 31. The decision follows her appointment as CFO of Ahold Delhaize, which limits availability for her current Supervisory Board role.

Commenting on the announcement, Ben Noteboom, Chair of AkzoNobel’s Supervisory Board, said: ”We thank Jolanda for her support and dedication, both as a member of the Supervisory Board and the Audit Committee. She has been a valuable source of expertise over the years and we wish her well in her future activities.”

The Supervisory Board will announce a successor – to be nominated for appointment at the next Annual General Meeting – in due course. Until then, her activities will be covered by the current Supervisory Board members.

AkzoNobel is recognised for supplying the sustainable and innovative paints and coatings that our customers, communities – and the environment – are increasingly relying on. The company is active in more than 150 countries and have set our sights on becoming the global industry leader. It’s what one can expect from a pioneering paints company that’s committed to science-based targets and is taking genuine action to address globally relevant challenges and protect future generations.

Recently, AkzoNobel gets concerned about finding the best possibilities to explore the sustainability in a different way. They constantly look for making their products more sustainable and longer lasting. Because they believe that, ‘Paint Matters’ – to them, to everyone. Collaborating with customers, suppliers, academia and other stakeholders is fundamental to what they want to achieve. It’s about pushing boundaries and finding inventive ways to collectively make a positive contribution to an ever-changing world. This will be vital if everyone is ready to realize their science-based target of halving the carbon emissions by 2030.

AkzoNobel also focuses on the climate change that affect their operations along with their customers. So, they get committed to become a carbon-neutral company by 2050. And now, they are returning this ambition into reality by setting aspirational, science-based targets.
