Pieter Nuboer, Vice President, Asia Pacific: “At DSM our purpose is to deliver a positive impact on our world, both on the people and planet dimensions. We believe that the winning enterprises over the next decades will be those that passionately and effectively drive sustainability as their core value. Everything we do at DSM helps create brighter lives through brighter science, we are tremendously proud to be recognized for our impact in Singapore also”.
On a global scale, DSM has consistently been recognized for integrating sustainability into its business. The company has been ranked among the very top leaders of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index in its sector five times and held the worldwide sustainability leader position in the Materials industry group (formerly known as the chemicals super-sector) six times since 2004. For DSM, sustainability is a core value and responsibility to all stakeholders based on innovations that benefit People, Planet and Profit.
ECO+ is DSM’s program for the development of sustainable, innovative products and solutions with ecological benefits. Products qualify as ECO+ when their environmental impact is better compared with competing mainstream products fulfilling the same function. When considered over their entire life cycle, ECO+ solutions offer superior performance and a lower eco-footprint. DSM aims to increase the share of ECO+ solutions (products that offer clear ecological benefits versus the mainstream solutions they compete with) towards 50% of total sales by 2015 and above 80% in innovation.
People+ is DSM’s program to develop solutions that measurably improve the lives of consumers, employees and communities across the value chains. People+ offers new perspectives beneficial for new product development, value propositions and customer engagement. With People+, in combination with ECO+, it makes DSM’s brand promise ‘Bright Science, Brighter Living’ more tangible.
