Over the past decades, consumption and production of materials has created a series of interconnected environmental challenges. These include climate change, the accumulation of plastic waste and natural resource depletion.
At DSM Engineering Materials, our purpose is to create brighter lives for all. As such, we have strong ambitions to enable sustainable living by reducing the environmental impact of our operations and improving the sustainability profile of our products. To realize our ambitions and to keep ourselves accountable by driving transparency, we have put in place a series of ambitious targets:
By delivering on these ambitious targets, DSM Engineering Materials will take the next important steps in our sustainability journey, and further enable a circular and bio-based economy.
To enable the transition from a fossil- to a renewable based economy, we commit to re-use of plastic waste or biomass (waste) feedstocks.
Plastics do not belong in our oceans, instead we aim at improving recyclability which turns them into a valuable feedstock again.
We enable our customers to reduce the footprint of their products by reducing the carbon footprint of our products, and hence reduce the overall CO2 emissions
We cannot achieve a circular plastics economy on our own; our vision is a world that works together to keep plastics in the economy, starting with our value chain partners.
Offering a portfolio of recycled- and/or bio-based alternatives.
Closely managing the carbon footprint of our products and operations.
Taking responsibility to control and minimize all possible safety risks and adverse effects on people or the environment.
Products and services that deliver high performance while providing additional benefits to our society and environments.
We’re so convinced of the value of doing well by doing good that our strategy is aligned with the Sustainable Development (SDG) goals outlined by the United Nations in 2015.
DSM takes its global environmental and social responsibilities seriously. This goes beyond our own operations to that of our suppliers, customers, and end-users.
DSM's Climate Change Agenda focuses on reducing our own carbon footprint, enabling the low-carbon economy with our solutions & advocating climate action.
Bio-based Arnitel® is added to the growing range of DSM Engineering Materials' bio-based alternatives to its portfolio.
DSM will start a strategic partnership with Neste, the world’s leading producer of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel and a forerunner as provider of renewable and circular solutions for the chemical industry, to enable the production of high performance polymers.
