Since 2012, over 30% of our global spend on physical distribution has been covered by the Green Tender Initiative. The cumulative CO2 emission reduction compared to 2010 reached 15% at the end of 2015, the latest reporting period.
GHG impact in sourcing
DSM considers GHG impact in its global sourcing selection process. Based on the insights of an LCA for the supply of nitrogen, DSM can assess the impact of scope 2 and 3 GHG emissions for each supply option. This has enabled a sourcing process that includes supply guarantee, quality and cost, as well as GHG impact.
For example, the DSM Dyneema plant in Heerlen, the Netherlands, has been able to reduce 42% of the annual GHG emissions associated with its supply of nitrogen.
