We are a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials.

Our purpose is clear: To create brighter lives for people today - and generations to come by connecting our unique competences in Life Sciences and Materials Sciences to drive economic prosperity, environmental progress and social advances.

We create sustainable value for all our stakeholders through innovative solutions that nourish, protect and improve performance in a wide range of other sectors including automotive, electrical and electronics, packaging, food, beverages & dietary supplements, personal care, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, paints, life protection, alternative energy and bio-based materials.

A focus on sustainability

Our commitment to sustainability is based on the very straightforward premise: There is no point in DSM and its customers succeeding in a world that fails.

In the automotive, packaging and E&E segments – where EcoPaXX® is most commonly used, carbon emissions, energy efficiency and the need to reduce waste increasingly dominate the landscape – which is why this material is one of a whole family of thermoplastics that offer sustainability benefits over traditional materials.

In fact, across the entire DSM organization ECO+ products currently comprise about 34% of our total net sales. By 2015, they will account for over 80% of our innovation pipeline, and constitute around 50% of our total net sales.

To reach this target, we’ll continue to build on our strong platform of ECO+ innovation, such as coatings for solar cells, waterborne paints, and of course bio-based materials like EcoPaXX.
