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 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. 

As well as delivering sustainability benefits through our products, that means using less water, energy and other materials in production; and it also means developing our products with end-of-life in mind: Recycling is now a major part of all our value propositions.

As the world’s leading manufacturer of ingredients for health & nutrition, we have our own unique definition of what quality means, as defined by our Quality For Life™ seal. It’s based on the four essentials of quality, traceability, reliability and sustainabilty. More>
