Jotun is committed to being at the forefront of innovation in the paints and coatings industry. At the same time, we strive to be a responsible global company. This is why our brilliant R&D minds work tirelessly to develop products, solutions and practices that help us move towards a more sustainable future.
The Jotun innovation network
At Jotun, most processes for developing new products and solutions are driven from a customer-centric perspective. When a specific challenge arises in one of our markets, we set out to find a solution.
Typically, a new idea will be developed and refined through the Jotun innovation network. This process involves testing the new concept before an innovation board to determine its potential. This thorough process ensures every Jotun global innovation initiative is proven to be effective.
This technology-driven approach has resulted in several technologies, products and solutions that our customers did not even know were possible. Our Hull Skating Solutions is such an example; revolutionising the way ship hulls are cleaned to improve overall performance and sustainability.
Working towards a sustainable tomorrow
A significant portion of our R&D effort is targeted at green innovation. As a global player in the paints and coatings industry, Jotun plays a key role in developing more environmentally friendly products, solutions and practices, and also reducing our own carbon footprint.
From the initial selection of raw materials to our own production processes and all the way to end of product life, our life cycle analysis methods make sure our combined footprint is as environmentally friendly as possible.
