Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials, today announces the publication of its 2016 Integrated Annual Report, in which DSM reports on its progress and performance over the year in terms of People, Planet and Profit.
DSM’s Integrated Annual Report offers stakeholders detailed insight into the company’s business development and financial results, as well as into its environmental and social performance. The sustainability reporting in DSM’s Integrated Annual Report is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards. The 2016 Report also follows the <IR> Framework of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), which provides additional guiding principles and content elements for integrated reporting.
DSM has also aligned its sustainability strategy with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The company is familiar with the opportunities and responsibilities that the SDGs represent for DSM’s business, and while mapping shows that it contributes to all of them, DSM has chosen to focus on the goals which most closely align with its strategic ambitions. In the 2016 Integrated Annual Report, a start has been made with building the SDGs into DSM’s reporting process, for example by mapping SDG reporting priorities in the company’s value creation model, and its material topics.
