DSM at Climate Week NYC
Parsippany, US, 19 Sep 2017
Innovation. Jobs. Prosperity
The 8th edition of the Climate Week NYC, a global summit alongside the UN General Assembly, is taking place from 19 to 25 September. The summit brings together business, societal and government leaders to share tools, resources, innovative ideas and strategies that are needed to achieve climate change and support the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Why DSM is at Climate Week
Besides being our core value and a key responsibility, for many years we have made sustainability a real business driver for DSM, developing solutions, building partnerships and increasing our impact in key areas. Our Strategy 2018: Driving Profitable Growth emphasizes the focus we place on sustainability as our core value. Addressing the challenges of climate change, nutrition & health, and resource scarcity drive our business and innovation strategies. We believe that our expertise in health, nutrition and materials position DSM to actively contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
What we'll be talking about
Throughout the week we will be participating in a number of sessions discussing how to best take climate action, for example by putting a price on carbon, and how to accelerate public-private cooperation and deploy new technical solutions to deliver on the 2030 SDGs via the Sustainable Development Impact Summit of the World Economic Sustainable Forum (WEF).
Tune into the Climate Champions panel session
On Thursday, 21 September, Feike Sijbesma will be participating in a Climate Champions Panel. The session will be live streamed, both on Facebook and the web.
