And what exactly is a bio- or recycled-based material? Our commitment means that, as a minimum, each of our grades in the alternative portfolio will contain 25% recycled- or bio-based material, which does not compete with feed-food systems.
Developing this portfolio of alternatives will involve a significant resource investment by DSM Engineering Materials over the coming years. But it is a challenge we must and will undertake: together with our customers and partners, we can drive our industry to a more sustainable future, without compromising on the functional performance of our products and materials.
In the coming months and years, we will work with more parties within our industry— including our suppliers, customers, collaborative partners and even competitors—to lead the transition toward more circular and sustainable materials. I hope that our full range of bio- and recycled-based alternatives will serve as an inspiration to these parties, because together we can make great things happen!
