Sustainability - Quality for Life
Sustainability is at the core of our corporate culture and is a key component to our Quality for Life™ promise and our Quali® ingredients.
We put significant efforts into improving the efficacy of food and personal care ingredient production within all levels of the industry. For instance, we invest heavily in developing products that help reduce the eco-footprint. We continually strive to reduce energy consumption and the environmental impact of our activities while optimizing land and resource use.
Quality for Life™ extends beyond products and services to incorporate our commitment to the environment and society. The seal symbolizes our pledge to uphold ethical values in relationships with customers, employees and partners as well as the way we respect our planet. Our recurring number one position in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index reflects our success in achieving this. Deeply anchored within our business, our sustainability strategy addresses some of the world’s most pressing issues.
In the Community
Through our community programs and our expertise, we are fighting critical issues, such as hunger and malnutrition, across the globe. Since March 2007, DSM has been the official partner of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) – the largest provider of food aid to the world's hungry.
Over the past 20 years, we created, developed and continue to support the humanitarian nutrition think tank, SIGHT AND LIFE - now a Swiss foundation. DSM Nutritional Products’ Nutrition Improvement Program (NIP) delivers scientific and technical support, as well as high-quality micronutrients to combat hidden hunger. With nearly 1.1 million children losing their lives each year because of undernutrition related to hidden hunger, we designed Bright4Africa an education campaign to raise awareness of hidden hunger and the important role of micronutrients, especially among young children, adolescent girls and pregnant and breastfeeding women in Kenya and South Africa.
We cannot achieve success alone. That is why we work with global and local partners, as well as universities to improve human nutrition and health by encouraging the generation and exchange of scientific information.
We have an unwavering commitment to community issues and the world around us. Learn more about our sustainability practices.
