DSM Engineering Plastics' Stanyl plant in Geleen obtains almost 85% of its purchased electricity from renewables while the site in Pune, India now meets 50% of its total electricity requirements from renewable sources, half of which comes from the company’s own Solar Technologies Demonstration Center at the site, while the other half is derived from wind turbines. DSM Engineering Plastics is committed to continually explore opportunities to increase the amount of purchased electricity from renewables that it uses at all of its twelve facilities around the world.

Roeland Polet, President of DSM Engineering Plastics, says: “We are striving for continuous improvement in the environmental footprint within our own operations and along our supply chain. Reducing our dependence on fossil sources and increasing the amount of purchased electricity that can be attributed to renewable sources is a vital element of our strategy.”

“Royal DSM is committed to the responsible, efficient use of electricity”, Polet says. DSM is a signatory to the Climate Group’s RE100, which brings together the world’s leading companies committed to sourcing 100% of their electricity from renewable sources at the earliest possible opportunity.
