We Make It Possible

Sustainability at dsm-firmenich

As the world’s population grows, demand for animal protein will continue to rise. Over time, this need for ever-increasing quantities of animal protein, which is already placing tremendous pressure on our planet’s finite natural resources, will lead to significant environmental strain, and take our food systems well beyond the planet’s boundaries.


Our sustainability mission & vision

The need to provide enough animal protein for a growing population, while reducing the environmental costs of farming will require smart science and innovative solutions. To address this challenge, dsm-firmenich Animal Nutrition and Health has launched We Make it Possible.

Our mission is to lead a robust and achievable transformation worldwide in sustainable animal protein production, and to accelerate solutions that will foster a brighter future.


Sustainability is our core value, and it underpins our Purpose Led, Performance Driven strategy

We strongly believe that the world needs sustainable food systems. That’s why we are working to transform the animal nutrition and health industry worldwide so that it can deliver the solutions our planet needs, creating brighter lives for all.

We have four key nutrition goals:

  • To advocate healthy and balanced nutrition for all
  • To improve the nutrient content both of feed and of food
  • To enable the feeding of the world’s growing population on the basis of the finite natural resources available.
  • To reduce the eco-footprint of food production, which means keeping it within planetary boundaries.
