Sustainability at DSM

Safeguarding our world and its people

A brighter future for all

Sustainability is a common thread that runs through everything we do at DSM – and has done for years. The reason is simple. We don’t want to be successful in a world where the ice caps melt; coral is decimated; millions are left homeless and destitute due to climate change; while hundreds of millions remain undernourished. It was humans that caused this situation. But we really do have the power to change it…

Purpose-led

We believe so strongly in sustainability that the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are now woven into our strategy.

Our vision for nutrition

Sustaining healthy lives for all means better nutrition (especially for the world’s vulnerable) - and all within planetary boundaries.

Carving out a low-carbon future

The race is on for our society to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to a level where we can avoid ecological catastrophe. It’s a race we believe we can win.

Moving to a circular & bio-based economy

As the world’s population continues to grow, we need to stop using up its natural resources - and find new ways of reducing waste. Which is exactly what we’re doing.
