Akzo Nobel’s Yacht Coatings business partners with the Water Revolution Foundation
Established in 2018, the Water Revolution Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that works to preserve the world’s oceans by helping the yacht industry to drive down its environmental impact.
“More eco-conscious and more sustainable yacht industry”
“We have a natural connection with the Water Revolution Foundation and share the same goals, in that we both want to create a more eco-conscious and more sustainable yacht industry,” explains Jean-Michel Gauthier, Director of Akzo Nobel’s Marine and Protective Coatings business, which includes the Yacht Coatings activities.
Robert van Tol, Executive Director at the Water Revolution Foundation: “Akzo Nobel has shown its leadership in sustainability for many years and we are united in our passion and ambitions to build a more environmentally-friendly sector. We’re pleased to welcome them on board as an official partner and we very much look forward to working together to drive and accelerate change in the superyacht industry.”
