Human Cities
All our beliefs and activities come together in our Human Cities initiative. By the 2050s, more than 75 percent of the world’s population will live in cities. With 60 percent of our products in the buildings, infrastructure and transportation end-user segments, AkzoNobel can play an important role in this transformation. Curious how? Watch our movie here.

Who are we looking for?
We’re looking for people who can help to bring our Human Cities initiative to life. People who can see what is happening in the world – whether that’s climate change or the increasingly rapid pace of urbanization – and use those insights to work on ideas that contribute to shaping sustainable and attractive urban environments. People who can lead from the front to create better ways to live, learn, work and travel in cities that respond successfully to the challenges of the 21st century.
