“Sustainability is fundamental to our core values, our business and is embedded in everything we do,” said Robert Bryant, Axalta’s Chief Executive Officer. “From Axalta’s innovative technologies that help customers save energy and increase productivity, to the ways we are making our operations safer and lowering our environmental impact, to our unwavering commitment to acting with integrity, this Sustainability Report shares the progress that our global team has collectively achieved. Many of Axalta’s stakeholders are increasingly interested in sustainability topics, and this report is only one way we demonstrate our sustainability priorities and accomplishments.” 

In the two-year period that the report covers, Axalta demonstrated its ongoing commitment to sustainability and progress toward goals across a range of environmental, social and governance (ESG) areas. The report highlights numerous awards Axalta has received from customers, technology organizations and others that recognized the company’s sustainability programs and performance.
