Judith Werkman Loenen

Judith has an extensive career at AkzoNobel and has a background in chemical engineering. She currently leads the Innovation Excellence department which integrated the sustainability team 1,5 years ago. The approach to sustainable business that was developed is People. Planet. Paint. It is instrumental to achieve the challenging goals that have been set. It has led to an innovation & sustainability program which requires collaboration between all functions in the company and even with external partners, working towards one goal – bring new sustainable products to life.



With the increased economical and societal pressure on sustainability, many companies are changing direction and start focussing more on the topic. But how to bring it alive in your company, with your employees? And how to embed it in the way of working and the innovations brought to market?
