Creating a brighter future: ECO+
Measurably better for the planet
Since 2009, DSM’s ECO+ program has been steering products along their life cycle towards a superior performance and lower environmental footprint than competing mainstream products over their entire life cycle. These ecological benefits can be created at any stage of the product life cycle − from raw material through manufacturing and use to potential re-use and end-of-life disposal.
ECO+ solutions, in short, create more societal value with less environmental impact and form the ‘environmental leg’ of DSM’s Brighter Living Solutions.
The life cycle assessment that is the basis for measuring and steering is standardized within the chemical sector. DSM plays an active role in further harmonization and standardization of LCA, for example in its role as a member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, a group of sustainability minded member companies.
